I just noticed my car seems to be liking the Delta Sonic Enhanced D2 (Citgo Premium) more than the Meijer Premium diesel. I just started the tank off but it already seems to be liking it better according to the MPG's I'm getting on the display. We'll see how this tank works out but so far it's looking good!

Yes and from this thread, the Delta Sonic enhanced D2 diesel is the same as the Westmont Citgo station in this thread (Jimmy's service station in downtown Westmont). Not all Citgos (just like any other brand) carry the same fuel. It seems that all the Circle K stations (like Shell in a lot of the suburbs) carry straight diesel (I believe it comes from Ohio) as previously mentioned.

The car seems to really like the Delta Sonic diesel. And when it flat out says "Enhanced D2" right on the pump, it makes you feel good too since you know it's D2...lol

Sadly, not all Circle K Shell have diesel ... one close to me in Gurnee and the few that I drove into on my travels today in the near SW burbs don't ...

I drove around the Citgo in Joliet a month, or so ago, and saw the LBS (Little Blue Sticker) on the auto pumps. I didn't pay attention to the truck pumps...

Sorry...I meant all the Circle K Shell stations that HAVE diesel should be of a non-bio mix.

Confirmed earlier this week Sonic Delta at 600 West North Ave., Elmhurst has "Premium Diesel", NO blue label, BUT is $3.99 a gallon ...

Also drove by the Pilot on Indianaplois Boulevard in Highland, IN (just south of I80/94) and it had "Diesel #2" on its price board @ $3.55 - will check this out next time I go by there (I'm down there a lot for work, hence the TDI )

Good to know, thanks - I'll take a detour onto Ogden some day to check them out.

Also (and this may be a repost) Philips 66 on 53 and I55 in Bolingbrook has "Premium Diesel" displayed and lots of trucks lined up to fuel - many pumps but I didn't see any car lanes/pumps, only truck lanes.

First Post....and less than 2 weeks in the TDI.

Just paid 3.69 at the Delta Sonic in Downers Grove as well on 7/19.

When putting D2 into your auto do you use an additve as well?

The Shell on Peterson (just east of Butterfield) in Libertyville still does not have any stickers on their diesel pumps. This is where I fill up 90% of the time.. I assume it's Bio but it I can't worry about it too much as I have had no issues with the fuel.

I was getting low on petro in southeast WI, stopped in Genoa City, just nw of Richmond, IL. The BP on Elizabeth Lane, Genoa City advertised 'No Biodiesel here'. The receipt didn't indicate 'D2' like it does on the Phillips 66 in Volo, IL. We'll see how the girl performs. Paid $3.69

Bad news. The re-opening of the Phillips 66 at Dundee and Elmhurst Rd yields us no new source. Greeted by the blue sticker. Was really hopeful as their Diesel was priced at $3.999, which seemed much higher than I've seen in the area. However, the Shell station's unbranded biodiesel (labeled not a Shell product) across the street is at the same ridiculous price according to GasBuddy.

Fuelled up with D2 at 1812 West Jefferson St., Joliet - $3.69

Also what's Indiana's labeling laws like for diesel? Fueled at a Luke on Indianapolis Boulevard in Hammond IN just across the state line and it did not have bioblend sticker, only the ULSD one. Didn't bother to ask the attendant.
