So far with more searching, I have not found any 100 % diesel in Okieville.

In my experience, the local station has less idea what is in their tanks than you do.

Guilty as charged

Educate me about Cetane numbers.

Will be having the "fix" done to my TDi. But no MODs

Plan on driving it 'til the end.

Where do you get your page of Cetane numbers from? Do you test the fuel that you burn in your car if not who does?

you don't break out the test set everytime you fill up? amature

Only place i've seen anything worth while was in Toronto where they had a shell with diesel and diesel +plus, what ever that was, seeing I only needed a splash and go to make it back to US soil figured the extra 10 cents a gallon was worth it.

In Canadia, they price it by the liter... That would have been 40 cents (CAD) per gallon then, plus the exchange rate so more like 70 cents per gallon. Ouchie.

Of course, I have found that "Diesel plus" at a station here and there very infrequently... And NOBODY at those stations has been able to tell me what the difference is or why it might be desirable.

Fuel station clerks are...clerks. They know as much about the fuel they sell as they do a Snickers.

That's mean. They definitely know far more than that.... About the Snickers.

Read this thread titled "Canadian 'premium' diesel is mostly bogus http://www.myturbodiesel.com/threads...y-bogus.11063/ The shell product has small bottle of additive in the premium diesel pump. Designed to add maybe a percent as it is pumping diesel. Of course that relies on the station attendants finding a key, opening the pumps, checking to make sure the bottle is not empty on a regular basis, and filling it with the additive.

best diesel I have found is Kwik Fill super diesel in north east PA/W NY. A tdiclub member used to work at the refinery and the product is refined to a higher standard, tested more rigidly, THEN it gets an additive. I remember his post saying he has seen an entire truck load that would have passed fine as Diesel get rejected as super diesel and re-processed (which surely costs the $).

When I was driving TDIs, the Raceways by me put up a sign advertising their new "Premium Diesel". I e-mailed them asking what made it premium and the guy said he would contact the supplier. A few days later, the signs were down and the rep wrote back saying they're no longer advertising the premium diesel.

LOL - Same thing happened at the Shell stations in Florida when I inquired about their "premium" diesel signage too.

Came down really quick.
