If you see a white Jetta wagon, thats my car. I park by the Alpine or the Meadow area. BTW I work there as a ski instructor and work on Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Does anyone know where I could find Amoco Premier 50 cetane diesel in the Forest Lake area +/- 20 miles or so?

Come on... SNOW!!!

This best place for diesel around your area is Mills Fleet Farm, right now they are have Artic diesel which is 45 centane and higher. There is an Amoco right across the border(in WI) from Stillwater that has Amoco Premier

You got your snow, and I need to fuel up at the St. Cloud Mills this afternoon. 600 mile tank this time, 500 mile tank before

Hey DB, those snow tires working for you?

Sam thinking about a 4 motion and 6 speed conversion.

No kidding, nice to see some white stuff again. Just had one of my highest mpg tanks ever - 764 miles on 15.1 gallons! All highway driving with a few short high speed runs (I got bored). Went from Forest Lake to Minocqua, WI - then from Minocqua, WI to Marshfield, WI and back - then from Minocqua, WI back to Forest Lake - then back and forth to Coon Rapids and work a few times. Best winter tank ever for me. Crusing around at 64 or so, EGT was usually around 600 F, boost at 2 psi, tires at 38 psi, no roof rack.

Spamjohnson - if you're thinking about getting some blizzaks, I absolutely love them. I fell in love with them on my old Explorer and will always have a set for every vehicle I own. Great tire.

I had Hakki's on the rim's I sold to Deaf Bug, they were real nice, I got some M & S's on the standard rims last year, but I think my tread is down, my fault really. There is a place that I walk the dog that doesn't get plowed, so my ground clearance is my biggest issue.

That's great mileage, my 1 mile commute kills me.

Komarek TDI Wally Carlsons in Lindstrom has Premier Diesel use pump # 9 and grab the midddle pump this is # 2 diesel with no added anti-gelling additive and does contain 2 percent bio if your ok with that. The second choice if you do not want bio is to go to St. Croix Falls and fill up Maynards a BP station that has 40% # 1 and 60% # 2.

Any recommendations for good diesel in the SW metro? I usually fill up at the mobil in Eden Prairie when I'm not running bio, but I don't seem to get the best milage with it. Current tank is from the SA off the clearwater exit off 94. I seem to be getting much better milage then when I fill up at mobil. Thanks.

One that might be of interest would be Bauer's in minnetonka at Excelsior Blvd. and Baker Rd.

As for the Mobil, this is the one adjoining Davanni's and right next to the mall, right?

That one is actually closer to home, but I usually goto the one off Valley View near home depot. I don't think I've ever seen a diesel vehicle fill up at the one near davanni's. Plus they sold me a bad tank of premo gas this last summer. I'll try Bauer's next. Thanks.

How are you liking the 506.01? I was thinking about ordering some very soon. If someone wants to place an order with me to save on shipping let me know.

I plan to order 5 liters of the Elf 506.01 soon from Danix (tdiparts.com).

are you worried about warranty? 506.01 is as far as i know, essentially the "long life" version of 505.01 and supercedes any requirements of 505.01. as for whether vw dealer okays it or not, i don't know, but i wouldn't worry about what they say anyways...
there's plenty of people using 506.01, PD and non-PD cars. i'm probably going to start using 506.01 and for the 1st time do 10k change, send it in for analysis, and then start doing 15-20k oil changes...
