What brand Diesel?

Hey all, i'm just curious where you all get your diesel from. Specifically what gas stations. I've noticed that different stations will give me different MPG's. BP isn't bad imo, but there are not a lot of BP's around here with diesel. Seems i got great mileage with Walmart diesel in Florida over the past weekend. I'm sick of Thortons, i cannot get anymore than 13MPG on that garbage no matter how i drive....
Where do you guys normally fill up?

I fill up where ever it is cheapest. They generally have the highest volume of sales so the fuel isn't bad. We don't have any truck stops here or that is where I would go.

Marathon here sells the best fuel it's a dime more for reg. on road than anyone else $2.16 a gal. Dale the owner said the dime is the additives the others dont have. And when the local BP was up and running they were a nickle less than dale and about 3mpg less in my truck. And I'm not sure what the natives are sell'n it for. But theres off road fuel cheaper yet if you want to risk that. I've been thinking of a cetane tester just to see where everyone is at here.
