That is cool that they have so much more detail on their website than anyone else: http://www.rrcoop.com/RR/products.jsp

FYI

Husky has discontinued its Diesel Max additive program spring 2014. Although many retail pumps still have a Diesel Max sticker on them, additive is no longer added.

Shell regular and V-Power diesel is the same, comes from the same tank. Stations that have V-power have additional additive injected at the retail pump, when you fill your car.

That's unfortunate. Do you have a source?

I've been going without additive for the last 5ish years, purely because DieselMax is the same price as other D2. Looks like I'll have to stop being lazy and start using Power Service white for every fillup.

I have ties to the industry. Sorry to be cryptic, but better to be careful.

Sorry, this thread was sort of dead and I am not driving a diesel anymore so I am not really interested in updating it. The information in post#1 is four years old (last edited in 2010) so it sort of makes sense to start a new thread if there is enough interest in Canadian CETANE ratings.

Will someone take up the torch and start a new thread? I would be happy to put the link in post#1 of this thread.

edit: maybe there is already a thread for Canadian Cetane ratings? Let me know.

I was just at a Husky the other day and they had "Diesel Max" labels still stuck to the pump. No telling what the actual cetane rating was.

Its 40 minimum in Canada, otherwise, *nobody cares, apparently. (*nobody means none of the big fuel suppliers)

My only advice is: Drive more, worry less.

If you are taking your diesel to a race track maybe consider importing some synthetic diesel, but if you are at this level you probably already know about that.

I am just thankful I don't have to worry about different grades of gasoline and the ridiculous price differences between them.

I am driving the Volkswagen again, which is nice. My other car is a 2014 Honda Odyssey which averages twice the fuel consumption, but it uses regular gas, which is down to 90 cents a litre around here vs 120 cents for diesel. I still come out ahead every day I can cram all of the kids into the Volkswagen; diesel would have to go up to 180 cents before driving the gasoline vehicle broke even!

Diesel on my friends.

Husky claims that their Diesel is a higher cetane rating than others regular Diesel! The claim that Husky Max is 2-3 points higher.
