We should know what we're paying for and be able to compare prices / cetane rating.
I encourage you to also contact your State Representative to do the same.
Several states require posting the cetane rating, and "Premium Diesel" generally means having a cetane rating >/ 47 as well as meeting other / ASTM D975 / NIST 130 standards.
Also: Be sure to check out toptiergas.com which is referenced in my '12 VW Owner's Manual for approved gasoline for VW (as well as BMW, Toyota, Honda, GM, and others). I realize we use diesel and IMHO, if these companies meet strict gasoline requirements, they likely also include a full additives package for diesel.
Just another cost that will be passed on to diesel fuel users for no apparent improvement in fuel.
What states?? I have traveled to many states pulling my 5er with my diesel pick-up truck and I have never seen cetane ratings posted on any pumps. I have found B10-B50 posted on the pumps and left those stations for stations that sell No.2 Diesel.
