Re: V8 vs mythical crd

I've been seeing diesel the same price or just 10 cents higher than regular here as of late. Today I actually saw diesel for 20 cents cheaper than regular. First time I've seen that here (MN).

Re: V8 vs mythical crd

Diesel fuel costs often go up before winer and down during spring/summer, then up as summer driving increases. In colder parts of the country, refineries blend #1 and #2 diesel as their winter blend to reduce gelling, then cease blending as weather warms up, lowering costs. Costs will climb again as summer vacations push usage back up.

Must be nice! I have not seen diesel cheaper than regular in over 10 years. It runs around 10-20 cents more than premium in NC.

I can only compare with what I have seen... I have never needed to put Diesel in my tank that cost more than 15% more than gas. I have never seen less than a 30% savings between the diesels I have driven and similar V8s.... also soon at you get over 70 mph the savings start getting higher.
We know that diesel will never jump past the price of gas by more than the above or the entire shipping structure in North America will fall apart. More than 90% of goods shipped on this continent ride Diesel.... Trains, trucks etc. There is a reason they do to and that is efficiency and power
Just the more recent stuff is cleaner.

Re: V8 vs mythical crd

Well, I just took it as a sign that I should definitely get the CRD. But your logic makes sense.
