We present an updated version of our standard solar model (SSM) where helium and heavy elements diffusion is included and the improved OPAL equation of state (Rogers 1994; Rogers et al. 1996) is used. In such a way the EOS is consistent with the adopted opacity tables, from the same Livermore group, an occurrence which should further enhance the reliability of the model. The results for the physical characteristics and the neutrino production of our SSM are discussed and compared with previous works on the matter.
