This was not a fuel station that just anyone used. Primarily it is a repair shop and they have pumps on site for some corporate customers. They issue cards and you pull in, swipe, fill, and they bill your business. Consiquently, they no longer carry gas or diesel on site.
I think it ended up being a garbage truck and myself. The garbage truck filled before me and must have just started sucking it in because they drained the fuel and it wasn't nearly as nasty as my tank. They replaced the filter, added biocide to a fresh tank of fuel, and called it good.
My truck started bogging down in about 10 miles. I pulled the filter when I got home and could see it was filthy. The next filter lasted about 2 miles. We called the place and they shut down the pump. They dipped the underground tank the next morning, I had filled after hours, and confirmed there was about 8" left in the tank and the top 6" was this nasty stuff. After that experience, I only buy for my truck at truck stops or places where I know others fill with diesel regularly.
