The Marathon you were talking about, just West of 53 is the most expensive station, PERIOD. Over this last winter, I debated on reporting them for price gouging to the department of transportation. I watch the news, crude prices, etc..... Whenever the prices drop in the area and gas stations start lowering their prices all around Chicagoland, this station remains .40, sometimes .60 cents higher than neighboring stations. They never reflect market prices and never fluctuate. Im not sure if its because the Cook County highway dept is next door and cook county buys from them regardless.... I don't know. Wouldn't buy fuel from them if they promised my car would turn into a diesel Delorian and teleport at 88mph. I commute from Alg, to Melrose park every day and I heard there's a Delta Sonic selling Citgo premium diesel, right in elmhurst on rt. 64. Gonna check that out next.

All the Delta Sonic stations sell Citgo Premium Diesel and it seems to be really good. It even compares favorably to Amoco Premier Diesel I've gotten in Michigan that is supposedly at least a 47 cetane rating. I used to do Meijer diesel and will in a pinch, but I get 1-2 mpg better with the Delta Sonic diesel.

Forget about Amoco Premier it's been off the market for quite a while now. Check BP's website and you will see it no longer exists.

Want to bet? Call the BP station on Phoenix Rd. in South Haven, MI. You will see that Amoco Premier still exists. It just doesn't exist in IL.

I used to fill up at that Meijer. They use Shaeffer additive I believe. It was decent, but my 2012 TDI did not respond too well to it. Especially in winter (now) cold starts were poor and I heard some knocking. It's ok but doesn't compare to the BP D2 I used to get on Milwaukee Ave in Palatine - but they went bio.

Anyways, I posted this already, but there is a Mobil in South Barrington on Barrington Rd as you exit south from I90. It has D2 diesel, no bio. Cost is $4/gallon. I just got it yesterday and love the way my car runs. This is a newly built station and it looks like the owners opted for quality over cheaper pricing. They even have a 100 octane fuel for petrols - I've never seen this in Illinois before - of course it runs at $8/gallon but still. Gives you the impression that these people value quality of gas vs Illinois tax incentives to push the bio junk.

100 octane is available all over Chicagoland FYI.

As I said, it's available. I didn't say to drive there. I said to call there. You replied to me as though I was wrong even though I put it into my car in September. Anyway, it's available in Michigan as I stated originally. If you don't think so, call the BP station on Phoenix Rd. in South Haven, MI. It's okay to be wrong. I'm not antagonizing you. I just wanted proper info to be out there and your info was incorrect.

Keep pushin' it eh? Right about now I could care less if your right or wrong. Go to Michigan and buy the fuel BP says they don't supply. How do you know the guy in the station isn't wrong and just telling you he has Amoco Premier? Did you see it delivered and read the receipt. Now I'm done with this topic. Calling the station means nothing.

There are two pumps next to each other. One has regular diesel for 10 cents less and Amoco Premier right next to it for 10 cents more. It's a logo on the pump...lol. It's available, dude.

OK I have not been there so you must be right. Next time when I am in the area (maybe never) I will swing in and pay ten cents more to get 47 cetane fuel. Don't know what else to say. You wanted to be right and I guess you are. Does this make you feel better? You are right and I am wrong! Let it die as most of us don't care anyway.

Guys, just put him on your ignore list. I did and I haven't regretted it yet!
