Because it's about sixty miles to El Cajon Blvd. for me, I'd most likely travel down there with a couple
of containers and buy that and add it to the local Arco to achieve the reguired 5 percent mixture.
I can pay at the facility at the desk, but their working hours are M-F 7-5 with no weekend hours. My wife drives the car during the week and gets home too late to go during the week. As of now, there's a $0.15/gal premium over ULSD if you pay at the desk.
I know it's a bother, but why not get a couple of five gallon containers or perhaps smaller
containers of straight B100 and add the correct portions to whatever you figure would
be correct to maintain 5 percent without of course going over five percent?
Add it as you are filling with straight ULSD so it will be mixed properly.
Messy perhaps, but a way to be sure that what you wind up
with is five percent (B5) and not something more or less.
i e . . One gallons is 128 fluid ounces, so five percent would be 6.4 ounces, correct?
When filling and you figure it will take ten and one half gallons to fill the tank,
add two quarts as you are filling and you'd have a five percent ratio (B5),
and you'd know that you have exactly five percent, no more no less!
It would have to be less than 15.6 cents times 20, or $3.12 per gallon
to make it come out even with what you paid for B5 alone.
Perhaps at Pearson you would not get charged for using your CC and their hours are better.
Idea. If Pearson pumps B100 straight from a pump, why not dispense a half gallon from
that pump and then 10 gallons of ULSD from the ULSD pump, and you'd not have
to bother carrying your own container to whatever station you use now?
Later, after your most recent post. There you go.
$3.09 per gallon, mix your own at Pearson and their hours will work out for you.
Pearson Fuels does not charge for you using your CC do they?
