Sounds like wrong fuel type to me. Like maybe gas and not diesel?

Or is it possible that the "station" fills their diesel tanks with lower cetane ratings then what the truck wants? (state law varies so much, there is no national standard for cetane ratings, just sulfur)

The biggest problem comes when it's time to pay the bill. This is not covered under warranty, and could cost as much as $8000 to fix.
