Its not about brand, its more about quantity. Go to the ones that get used a lot (diesel). Cetane numbers can vary, its not as specific as gasoline. I prefer to go to the truck stops personally.

High voulme stations will likely not have bio build up in the fuel.

its amazing how many people dont know this. me being one of them until i found a thread like this a while back. good thread guys hopefully alota people see this.

a little story for you guys...

buddy just bought an 04 2500 with just under 200k on the clock. back seat and front pass looked untouched. deff a farm truck, bone stock. anyways, guys farm was off the highway. closest fuel was a BUSY truck stop just down the road. im guessin he either fueled up there or used some other diesel with a funny color. either way, better fuel than hed find at a walmart or regular station in the city that sees more of that free government money than anything else....my point?

still runnin strong on a stock set of sticks! not that hes the first to do it, but like a lot of us kno (i know first hand), that aint REAL common.

just some food for thought...

I always try to avoid fueling when the tanker is sitting there. When they dump fuel, it stirs all the crap in the underground tank up.

Seems like high volume gas stations are the most popular choice to fill up at not necessary the brand name I know shell , chevron have higher cetane levels than some other stations. I've been going to my local 76 station cause it's the newest gas station in town figure their holding tanks are cleaner than the old stations I agree not to get gas when the big trucks are refueling the station. THANKS for all your input guys DIESEL POWER !!!!
