As tmmar stated, but you do have to watch the pumps at some truck stops. It should be #2 diesel. I had the same problem when I went on vacation where I come from there are labels on the pumps showing that the're low sulfer but in Calif. and some other states they don't have that label.

We just made a trip from Twin Cities to the Blacks Hills and back and found out my F-250 6.0 ran better on BP, Mobil than on Flying J or Pilot-- trying to hold a steady speed on J or Pilot it missed but on BP/Mobil it ran smooooooth..........and a scoesch better mileage.

I have a SuperFleet card that I use at Pilot and I usually get .03-.05 off automatically at the pump. Not sure how or why, but I'm not going to spoil a good thing by asking questions.

One of there additives was water. I had about a gallon of water in a 30 gallon gas tank on my Chevy 1500HD.

It was not actually an additive. This particular station just did a poor job o monitoring their tanks.

I know that in San Jose, CA there are two gas pipelines from the refinery in Richmond down to the terminal in San Jose where they fill the trucks. One pipe is for Chevron and the other pipe is for everyone else.

As you said, it is at the terminal that the additives are added.
