So I got word back that my local fill up spot doesn't use winter blend diesel so I'll probabaly run down to Wally World and pick up some anti-gel just as a safe guard for my trip home. Don't plan on using it regularly but I'd rather be safe then sorry.

This is a good reason to quit looking at cheap fuel from little convenient stores and look toward name brand fuels. Like I typically stay with Chevron, Cennex, Shell, Flying J, Maverik, etc. All high flow places typically the fuel is a bit more expensive but the fuel MUST meet the requirement of the brand name. Years ago Chevron use to keep a page updated with pour point temperatures, and dates of when PPD where used and basically how much. Now the page has been removed.  I've been know to ask store owners of what type of fuel filters used are they using paper filters or water blocking filters and what micron rating. I've going to recheck my local Chevron since its changed owners now and want to see if they still hold the same standards.

I fill up on base which I know goes through a TON of diesel. Our local shell diesel pump isn't even a newer updated pump and I always feel like it's not up to par. If there was a Chevron closer, I'd use them exclusively, no questions asked. That's the problem living in a smaller town like mine.

 

How do you typically find out what kind of diesel is being used? Do you have to ask the individual places or can you go online for the bigger chain places?

I typically call the manufacturer and ask for the specs from the tech dept and they typically will provide what you are looking for. Just tell them you doing research personally. I've never had an issue getting information.

Like Chevron use to post all the specs on their site for the longest time and now stripped most of it off their web site. So the last time I got the phone number from the local Chevron and made the call to the tech dept and got the spec numbers and did my own figuring out. Some manufactures have specs on web pages some in PDF documents and some don't list them at all and you have to call.
