Filled up the GLK-250 at the Noblesville Co-op and B5 was $0.20 MORE expensive
than B20! I can't remember B5 EVER being cheaper than B20 there (or anywhere
Topped the Bug off with B20, as usual; still scratching my head over the pricing.
2013 250 BlueTec - 27K+ miles; highway mileage 35-just a tenth shy of 40; city, 29-31.
Only drawback - run flats. Had a tire get sliced late one Saturday and
was stranded until Monday morning. Give me conventional tires

28-29 MPG in city. No issues to date, knock on wood.

When I was home last weekend, I pulled in to top off the wife's car...WHAT! Diesel-R and out-of-service B-20! Glad to read that the 'R' is actually B-5...phew! I run B-20
in the Bug, but B-5 in the wife's car and the zero-turn and tractor.
You'll love it. The lack-luster brakes have magically disappeared. I drove it
