I recently had a short discussion with other members of the forum on fuel price and fuel quality. Unfortunately every member involved quietly bowed out of the conversation. I would really like honest input and anyone who believes that perhaps the folks at the top of the food chain (or oil chain) may be taking us for a bunch of half wit suckers. My primary bone of contention is fuel quality, consider the following: 20 years ago ar so I was purchasing deisel fuel for approxametly 15-20 cents cheaper than regular unleaded Maybe 65 or 70 cents per gallon. Gas remained more expensive than deisel until about 2002 when the price of fuel began to act like stock prices and folks attempted to save money by NOT buying gasoline vehicles. Since the begining of the transportation revolution there has had to be an additive procedure with the usage of deisel fuel to make it more user friendly. As a consequence we were willing to temporarily sacrifice mileage for peace of mind. Summer would return and so would the quality of our deisel. Now, having said that, Why wouldn't it be possible to double or triple or even quadruple the dilution solution used to keep deisel from gelling in the winter time all year long? less fuel per gallon must mean less overhead at the pump. but we still pay the same price.
1 gallon of deisel = 3.83 (today)
1/2 Gallon of deisel =1.90
1/2 anti gel solution (estimate) .50 = 2.10
that is 1.73 profit on something they did not sell.
I am only guessing here but anyone that has seen a gangster movie knows that when Scarface buys a key of coke he cuts it with something so he has 2 keys of coke thus doubling his money and selling NOTHING.
I ask the good people of the Powerstroke forum to help set the record straight.
Tune your trucks, monitor your driving habits, document your consumption and who you get it from . Maybe if enough of us do this we will be able to expose the corruption and inspire people to perpetuate self sufficency .
e.g. I have a restuarant. I could sell my WVO to Oil recyclers for .40 per gallon OR i could thunb my nose a the rich getting richer and GIVE my wvo to my loyal customers .
Or maybe we could just catch big oil robbing us and beat them all up
I hope my barely coherent rant made sense to someone and maybe two of us could bust these guys asses and get into their pockets like they get into ours.
They dont just steal from me they take from my children and my grandchildren
