canadian gas (diesel) stations

can anyone recommend some good gas stations for quality fuel? some friends i know who own diesels highly recommend Shell for diesel, but would like to know a couple more that have good fuel as there isnt always a shell available or even name a few brands to avoid for poor fuel.
the town i live in has Fas gas for diesel and i always see the diesel trucks filling up there but is it only cause the choice is limited or do they have good fuel?
any help would be appreciated as i want to treat my new truck well
thx in advance

If you fuel at stations that pump a lot of diesel you should have no problem. That way you will be getting "fresh" fuel.

the only time I have ever got bad fuel in Alberta was from a UFA...I put 30k on in Alberta this winter.
Husky, Shell , petro-canada , Fas Gas , 7-11 (petro-canada also)Macs.
I try to go to these stations when posible....have never heard anything bad about their fuel.

I usually fuel up at Shell and Petrocan and UFA. Seem to get the worst mileage off shell fuel actually. I have heard Flying J is bad and that's why it's so cheap, but I don't know if that's true.

What problems did you have with UFA?
