NORTHERN DIESEL SUCKS!!!

I just drove from Florida to Indiana to visit my parents and I've noticed something...NORTHERN DIESEL REALLY DOES SUCK!!! I get about 18-22mpg when I fill up down in Florida. But for some reason, when I fill up here I get about 14-15mpg. That's a little weird to me...actually it's really weird. I guess it's another reason I'm glad I got stationed in Sunny Florida!!!

That it is probably winterized diesel.Has some kero and other additives to keep it from gelling up in the colder climates.Negative effects are ****ty fuel mileage.Here in oregon I burn it from late October early November till May.

Well I can't wait to get back to Florida then...lol. From Florida all the way up to Louisville diesel was $4.05/gal tops. Then I get up here and its $4.19 to $4.25/gal...and I get worse mileage...RIP OFF!!!

Winter blend gives poor mileage for sure.Weather hitting 60's consistently so I'd expect
the change over happen soon.Funny,now prices way over four bucks a gallon no ones talking about shortages.
