Seeing as how the 6.4L is only rated for B5... Not a good choice IMO.

Hide and watch.. i bet a lot of stations start carrying similar grades... The missing sulfer allows the stuff to stale in short order, and allows bacteria to grow in it.. just having a 10% mix allows the dealer to retain quality inventory longer.. they can load up and fill tanks when prices at rack drop, but still raise prices when rack inclines..plus, mixxing it is hard to regulate, further reducing their costs.

At least until they get caught and fined heavily.
