Hey Everyone,

My favorite BP truck station in Warren put out the ULSD stickers today. 10 mile and Sherwood in case anyone is wondering.

The station by my house (12 and Gratiot) does not say anything yet.


What about you guys West of me? Brighton, Fowlerville, etc?

I have not seen it around here yet, but my last fillups were in Toronto and then in Holland, MI. I will keep an eye out for it.

The Mobil station @ I-94 & M-52 has ULSD stickers. They are also 10-20 cents a gallon HIGHER than everyone else in the neighborhood @ all times, so I would push my vehicles before I paid their prices. (I go there to use the RV dump ).

Wacker still had LSD stickers as of today. Kinda suprised by that.

Had to fuel a piece of equipment at work today and lo and behold, the diesel pump at the Speedway station at the corner of Division and Front in Traverse City had a (an? ) ULSD sticker on it. The diesel was clear as water. I didn't notice any obvious change in the operation of the equipment (skid-steer mounted cold planer) but the exhaust did not smell as dieselly, much nicer for anyone who isn't a diesel fanatic

Unless it is a Ma & Pa waaay in the boondocks, one not need to worry about ULSD coming out the hose... Those $32,000 fines got everyone moving to ULSD in serious fashion.....

Understood. Call me obsessive but I have still been watching the pump stickers like a hawk for the change-over. Way too much crappy diesel out there (up until now) for my liking.

Guys- please post any locations where you actually see a ULSD label on this thread. We're trying to collect all locations on one thread. Thanks!!

Yeah, I was at the BP on 9 and Hilton over the weekend (they have Premier) and only LSD decals, no ULSD ones. The Premier, though, was noticably green and seemed to foam a little more than a few weeks ago when I was there.
