Diesel cetane levels and performance/MPG?

Hi all,

Does cetane levels impact performance and/or mpg's much in the ecodiesel? Been calling around the area and seems most diesel is around the 42-45 range. Does anyone notice any difference or prefer a particular brand (Canadian ones I'm most interested to hear).

Thanks

The higher the cetane rating The greater your fuel economy will be. Average here in the states is 40 to 45. Have heard that some Shell stations have a higher rating, but unable to find any in Wisconsin to verify. European ratings are higher, some places in the Lapland area are high as 53.
