 Diesel Fuel Pricing

Yep, it sure is an investment to fill that tank.

Just wondering what other areas are seeing. Here gas has dropped (regular) to as low as $3.50 but diesel has not dropped a penny. Have seen it even 10 cents higher than it was when gas was $4 per gallon. Off road was 10 cents less than on road last week but has no road tax which is I think about 40 cents. It use to run at least 30 cents per gallon less. kt

Just stopped at the Co-op station an hour ago. Ethanol blend was 3.54, Premium was 3.66, and Road Diesel was 4.24. I don't remember the high for diesel, but ethanol (10%) was 3.98. Frank

Had to put some premium in the car on the way to 'coffee break' this morning, US$4.81/gallon.

Premium diesel, US$4.73/gallon, regular ethanol blend gasoline S$4.42/gallon.

Last load of off-road diesel we got was US$3.95/gallon, last load of AvGas I got was US$4.75/gallon.

All around the cheapest way from point to point for me still is the plane, it's the only thing I have that'll get the equivalent of nearly 25 miles per gallon.

The most 'smiles per hour' too! Smile

Best of luck.

In Michigan, gas was $3.67 last week and is now $3.95 again. Diesel has been hovering around $4.59/$4.79 the last couple of months.

Diesel lowered to $4.30 here at some stations yesterday late. No idea on off road. Gas is at more stations just under $3.50. kt

 Diesel Fuel Pricing

I'm on the road in the midwest right now, I paid Minnesota Fleet Farm a discounted $3.46 yesterday for regular unleaded (pump price was $3.50). Left the Mercedes at home this time, but I did notice diesel as low as $4.09 at one place in Wisconsin. Both the Olds and the Mercedes (used to) get 30mpg on the road, so I usually drive the one that burns the cheaper fuel (Mercedes has been sitting idle a lot this year).

But I won't buy gasoline that's watered down with ethanol anymore. On undiluted regular, my Olds gets a consistent 30mpg highway. But when I burn that 10% stuff, it drops as low as 26 sometimes. I'd rather pay a few cents higher for the good stuff, and get my 30mpg back.

The Mercedes doesn't like the new ULSD they forced on us last year either. I lost at least 2 mpg when I started putting that stuff in my tank. Performance dropped too, the glow plugs have to work harder on a cold engine, the engine takes longer to smooth out when cold, and I had to increase the idle speed. New injectors and glow plugs didn't help, neither did pump timing. I'm just now getting around to adjusting the throttle linkage in an attempt to bring up the idle speed.

Diesel has been steady at $4.87/ gallon all summer in central Connecticut. I thought it would drop at least by a dime, but nope!
