At the MA/NY border this afternoon (but in NY) diesel was $.96/gallon more than RUG at one truck stop. That's one of the biggest gaps I've seen.

Yep, RUG is an acronym and not a word.

yeah, rug, pug, & mid are all common when speaking of fuel,.....

We all here know that D2 (regular diesel)....

But D1 (essentially is the same as J1 & kerosene just taxed for on-road use in specific applications), D1 is sold at vehicle pumps side by side with D2 in very cold parts as taxed on-road fuel for extreme cold temp use. D1 is more common in places like rural Montana, Idaho....ect, so you really need to be careful what you put in your tank in these places is labeled as diesel is actually all-weather D2 and not straight on road D1 which our cars are not designed to run on by itself...I speak from first-hand experience when this happened to me in that region in the 1990s in my old TD Jetta...

At some stations around here -- a few, not many -- there are pumps where you can blend your own winter fuel. There are five buttons on the diesel pumps:

D1 100%
D1/D2 70/30
D1/D2 50/50
D2/D1 70/30
D2 100%

It's been a while so I don't know or recall the price differences between each blend.

Actually the “u” can be left out as it was inserted to differentiate unleaded gasoline from leaded gasoline when both were sold concurrently during the phaseout of lead. Since except for aviation use leaded gasoline is no longer available, the “u” is not needed anymore.

I’m guessing the store was new but had yet to activate their pumps so they used the price sign to temporarily “discourage” fuel stops.
I’m back in Prescott for the holidays and the Circle K mentioned above has activated their pumps so the prices are in line with other stations in town.
