I'm toying with the idea of finding a dedicated source for fuel and sticking with it for the majority of my fills.. where are South Austin people getting their quality fuel? I can't think of any high-turnover stations with diesel..
HEB's or WalMart's (Murphey) fuel islands and add Stanadyne Lubricity formula...the kicker is the "may contain up to 10%" or "up to 5%" biodiesel" stickers on the pumps. No biodiesel in the mix is still "up to XX%", so ya never know if you get any lubricity additions from the biodiesel or not
The best price is another matter. I live near Blanco, which usually has the best price.
Well many on here have posted they have never found water in the fuel. I have been driving TDI's since 2005 and have never found water in my fuel and I pretty much use whatever station is handy if I am not around my usual around home spot. Unless you have some stuck out of the way station that doesn't see much traffic, I doubt turnover is going to be an issue. Diesel with a bio component will easily get the lubricity you want and that is assuming it needs improving at all. I use the Murphy station (new) near my home mostly. It has B5 to B20 and I made the choice to use it and check the oil regularly as is required in Illinois. I have had no issues thus far. You will have to make that decision yourself to exceed B5 or not. I also use 2 of the HEB's here that sell B5 or less when they are cheaper.
I haven't ever found water in my fuel, but I did just change a fuel filter for a friend and she had about a half teaspoon in the bottom of her early CBEA canister. She lives in Austin and occasionally travels back to Houston. Should have been almost all TxLED over that fuel filter.
I'll look at murphy. Do you know if that B5-20 is just at that particular station or are other locations getting similar stuff? I'm not worried about B>5 in my car (reason in sig).. though I don't want to run B100 for a few reasons.
