  2. 10% ethanol in diesel?

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Well here over the past two weeks or so i've noticed a drop in fuel economy, and the dpf filling up and going into regen a lot more often.

  3. fuel question

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Heard someone talkin about algae, mudd or contaminents in the fuel tank. mostly wondering about the "algae " people talk about. I guess its something you can get from when you fill up at little used stations or from letting the fuel sit around too long in your truck. My question is how...
  4. Diesel Fuel Quality

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Just curious... but has anyone else noticed the quality of fuel is directly inproportionate to the cost? It seems as though the price keeps going up and the quality keeps going down. I used to change my filter every 6,000 miles or so... but now it seems I have to do it more often.
  5. What gas stations have good Quality Diesel?

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    I am wondering where to get good quality diesel. Last I checked a few years ago any station selling amoco fuels was a good choice. But in my recent research on filters I found there is no such thing as amoco fuel. The BP stations in the US switched over to BP fuels a couple years ago. Around...
  6. Ultra LSD Problems & Solutions

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    My 2004 GMC 2500 Sierra HD ran out of diesel when my fuel gauge read 1/4 full. The low-fuel light did not come on either. The GMC dealer checked my instrument cluster and it was fine. I read on line where ULSD causes several potential problems including causing the fuel-level sensor to...
  7. Truck Stop fuel??

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    When you guys pull into a truck stop for fuel, do you get it at the pumps where the big rigs get it or do you go to the "passenger car" fuel pump? I have only had my truck for a few weeks now and noticed that there is a huge difference in price from one to the other. The Pilot closest to me was...

  9. Low and Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel??

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Well I am not too knowledgable in this diesel fuel info. But apparantly most service stations and truck stops have been fully converted to ULSD ultra low sulfur diesel. By 2006 most refiners in Canada were supposively only aloud to be sending this stuff out. ULSD is like 15PPM sulfur where the...

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    I have been told to get some fuel for a small very old tractor on the farm, he told me to put some fuel stabilizer in it because I only run it once or twice a year. I could not find one marked for diesel at the local wally world. what kind should I use and where to buy it. Will this mixture hurt...

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Recently took a trip through the Western 1/3 of Montana. When fueling at the Diesel pumps we had several choices. #1 diesel, #2 off-road diesel w/red dye, #2 Highway ULSD diesel and I think there was even one more. Can someone explain the differences please?

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Can you run JP8 military grade fuel in my 2008 Duramax Diesel? Did you need to add fuel additives to it to be able to put this in your Duramax?
  14. Anyone mixing vegetable oil with diesel?

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Apologies if this has been discussed here before but I did a search and couldn't find any posts. I realize that running 100% vegetable oil requires a conversion, but has anyone with a Duramax tried blending vegetable oil with petroleum diesel? Every gallon of diesel I don't have to buy is...

  19. LSD vs ULSD

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    OK folks, I've spent over an hour --guess I'm a slow reader -- searching through this forum's posts trying to find some specific commentary on running LSD rather than ULSD in my '07 GMC Duramax. For whatever reasons --the counter 'droids had no idea what I was asking about -- my usual diesel...
