Re: Differences in Fuel by company? Texaco, Shell, etc.? Am I nuts?
If you get "bad" fuel you definately see the difference but that should be pretty obvious. I travel alot and even though I try to stay with the "big" names occasionally I don't have a choice and get stuck using "Bubba'a Blend" diesel. That's why I use Stanadyne religiously. With my old GMC I experienced numerous problems with water, contaminates, and lubricity issues. After I learned about additives and changes in diesel fuel over the last 10-20 years I decided I would'nt run without it. I've been adding it to every tank in my Ford since day one and my filter is always spotless at changes and I've never had any moisture either. I've used diesel from some really questionable places in the middle of nowhere and to date NO PROBLEMS! Although I probably just signed my trucks death warrant with this post.
