Fuel Brand

I have been running strictly Chevron in my truck. This weekend I stopped by a BP to gas up my wife's ride and BP had a pamphlet at the pump talking about their diesel fuel and all the advantages of it. There was a link to a website (Diesel Fuels, Premier Diesel, Supreme Diesel | My BP Station).

So, are you loyal to a particular brand of fuel? If so which one?

Chevron. No BP around me. After running fuel from independent stations I notice my truck does not run as well.

Ok I see 3 levels what is the price difference from the lowest to highest.

In the Phoenix area all I see is just 1 #2 diesel on sale.
