$3.59/Gal...WooHoo??

Local Valero is 3.59/gal...Not too bad these days right?? But there is this disclaimer:



Biodiesel or Renewable Diesel?? I know what biodiesel is but exactly how does one "Renew" diesel? If it can be renewed, I've been through quite a bit of it lately and could really use some renewing.

While we're at it my '03 could use a lil renewing to a 2012.
Just kidding, I wouldn't trade her in for the world. Too much sweat and too many busted knuckles invested.

So what the heck is "Renewed" diesel??

2014 6.7 CCSB FX4
Edge CTS
6" RCX Lift
H&S Turbo Kit
DieselSite Filters
S&B Intake - Dry
No Limit EGR Delete
4" Flo-Pro / Donaldson
H&S Tunes via XRT Pro
Bilstein 5160s Front 5125s Rear
60gal RDS Auxiliary Fuel Tank/Toolbox

I paid $3.55 for good ol #2, not B5, at the Safeway station here in Vancouver, WA. The price has been that way for about a week. I saw this morning that it went up to $3.71 though. However, its still the cheapest in town with all the other stations charging around $3.95.

No sir, Valero is not owned by Venezuela, you're thinking of CITGO, which is owned by PDVSA (or some such acronym).

Valero is a publicly traded company and is owned by it's stock holders.
