Diesel Tracking?

I live in Portland, Or and around here lately the Shell stations have been offering B20 for around 40-50 cents cheaper a gallon that #2. So this morning I grabbed some (along with an extra fuel filter) and noticed they took down my license plate number and how many gallons I purchased as well as the fact it was for a pickup. I asked what it was for and he told me "It's for tax purposes, so we can keep selling it so cheap". He couldn't tell me much more than that. Can anyone tell me why they are doing this?

You didn't happen to notice a red tint to the fuel? It would explain everything if it did.
