With ethanol I wondered if people still bought bulk, unless they went through the tank fairly quickly. Same with today's diesel

have to ask mom for sure what they dropped last time but they show premium without ethanol.. older tractors used to get ethyl when it was available so fairly sure they drop highest octane available..

pretty sure she buys red dye because all of the diesels are off highway tractors.. not sure if that's available in winter blend.. good question..

some parts of the farm business my folks took care of that I'm just not savvy, I was pretty much a grunt.. since dad passed I'm just keeping up best I can 1800 miles away :lol:

the 886 is enclosed cab so neighbor friend has the grader blade on it now.. only recall a few rare occasions below zero even plugged in that it wouldn't start.. those were c o l d days on the 706 plowing out to the nearest graded road, sometimes 2-3 miles to the highway if neighbors hadn't got to it yet..

That was my favorite fuel, too.

KB,. Can't beat those red tractors. My neighbor runs a 1086 Turbo on his place (dairy). Our road is the county line and seems to be low priority, especially when it comes to snow plowing. I remember we had a big snow in the late-80s. 30" IIRC. I think it was the second day, Jeff and his brother cleared the road for the milk truck. He backed that thing on up the road with the back blade and his brother cleaned and widened with the skid steer (Gehl). No waiting for the county. had to get that milk out!

I always wondered if the stations had all those tank in the ground back then. I was back home in the early 2000 when a old gas station was being torn down and everybody was raising kane because they only had 2 tanks in the ground. Guess what they where?

They had the multi blends but only 2 tanks!

I was told that the newer regs were going to force the tanks above ground. Not sure of when the enforcement date is. I know my local gas station has diesel and kerosene above with the gas tanks below. I think I payed around 2.19 a gallon for low test and 2.84 for diesel a few days ago. I did see prices on diesel dropping though. Ironically diesel could drop down to 2.00 a gallon and my closet big town would still be 2.79.

Does anyone else use an app to find the best price for gas? This on is called Gas buddy. It will map out the stations near you and report their prices.

You guys with the 2 buck a gallon gas are killing me. Take some pity on this poor Californian. Just say it's 4 bucks so I can sleep at night. :help:

Do you have a link or article on this? I do engineering design work for one of the largest fuel stations/stores in the county, and I've never heard of this. I've done over 30 in the past 2 years.

same question.. referring to what regulation level; local, state, federal?

I'm required to maintain an ICC license UST DO (designated operator) in CA and boy would I love nothing more than to never take that test again!

The Sheetz station in Orange, Va was completely gutted and rebuilt recently. They installed new tanks under the parking lot in the same process. So it's evidently not as issue yet.

Every gas station here has tanks under the parking lot.

None of the local stations here have above ground tanks, everything is under ground.:chevy:

Haven't bought gas since last week-end, but a quick search shows $2.09 at Kroger Grocery in Roanoke, VA, $2.06 with Kroger card.

Fuel has dropped from $2.49.9 to $2.45.9 where I buy. Am I supposed to get excited? I saw on Tuesday at the county seat the cheapest place is $2.25.9
