Very interesting and lots of information, thanks for posting this Lightflyer1.

US is on pages 136-147, and it's interesting the difference in the observed cetane numbers

East Coast - max 48 - mean 44 - min 39

Mid West - max 54 - mean 45 - min 40

West Coast - max 54 - mean 50 - min 41

.

Sticky thread for a while. Thanks for the info. :cool:

Very interesting. The spread in the HFRR measurements is a little surprising to me. Some scary high numbers and some shockingly low ones.

The HFRR averages are surprisingly good. I wonder how a histogram of the actual values would come out.
So we do not need no 'stinking' fuel additives after all :)

West Coast is probably due to CARB Diesel formulations.

Which Texas also copies.

Everyone needs to remember the maximum HFRR wear scar should be 460 mu, not 520 mu.

That is why I use stations with a bio component (at the pump) almost exclusively (0 to 20%). All the ones with 5 to 11% bio were under 200 HFRR scores. Not cold enough here for a winter additive and I have never found any water in the fuel since I started in 2005.

On the right hand side of the data, there are multiple "DIES" columns.

What is that?

Sample IDs. Dies for diesel, 14 is the year, then a (normally) incrementing unique number.

How is your CR Passat liking a diet of Murphy USA fuel with a minimum of 5% BD?

Would be a better report if they identified the brands and locations from where the samples were taken.

Just fine. No issues thus far. Although Chevron and the HEB grocery have had way better fuel prices lately. They also have a bio component. $2.02 at HEB the other day.
