Where to buy #2 or B5 in the Valley

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys,

Picking up my first Cummins on wednesday. Where is the best place to get fuel in the valley? I like out in Kuna.

Any mixed or #1 for sale in the valley?

Also does anyone sell B5 in the valley?

Thanks

Maverick and Fred Meyer are typically the lowest diesel prices around the Meridian and Boise areas. I haven't been out the Flying J way to check their prices, but typically Truck Stop prices are pretty reasonable.

Shouldn't get cold enough around these parts to need it. Could just dump in a couple gals of Kero if you are worried it will gel up.

I think I'm going to try a Cetane boost for a couple tanks..... Minimum Cetane for the Mercedes is supposed to be 45. Typical US diesel cetane rating is at about 40. Minimum Cetane rating in europe is 51.

Alright, bringing this back up... I know Stinker is B20, but Cummins limits me to B5, and getting 10 gallons at Stinker then the rest at Fred Myers is a PITA... so anyone know where I can get B5?

Stinker does not sell b20 they sell b5. Check the link for stinker stores near you.

Jeff & Tommy are correct. Stinker originally brought B20 to market but the Big 3 ONLY support B5 so they reduced the bio-diesel percentage to 5%.

Awesome, thanks Guys.... Safeway did the same thing where my Dad lives, I guess they realized folks weren't buying it....

Recently Cummins approved B20 for ALL of their engines, except the ISB in the Dodge Ram... I guess Dodge won't approve it, so for now I will stick with B5. Really I just want the lubricity, so I dont have to run my Diesel concentrate every tank.
