absolutely still go with diesel, last longer, more power, and the difference is price/gallon is offset by difference in effeciency

I just drove up the road and topped off with Bio-diesel. It was $2.13/gal for B100. I had a half tank so this should be a safe blend. I run an Edge Comp box among other things so the truck puffs a little. A little more with this stuff in the tank pluss it smells like I'm cooking french fries!

Today's prices - North Carolina

87 Octane $2.79/9 Gal

93 Octane $2.99/9 Gal

Both of the above are 20 cents cheaper than last week.

Diesel = $3.49/9 Gal

I have a 40 gal tank and a 50 gal aux. tank.

90 Gallons = $ 314.91

That sounds more like filling up the boat than the truck!
