Gas stations with DIESEL fuel

 

There should be POIs that show gas stations that carry diesel fuel. Anyone know where to lead me? Sometimes when driving, & in desperate need of diesel fuel, I have difficulty located a station.

Good Idea.

Boy, that would come in handy while traveling.

I guess it depends on what you mean by "driving." If you mean along the Interstates, then loading the truck stop POIs will always let you find diesel. If it is for a local area, then it would take someone with local knowledge or a company web site listing what is available at their locations to develop the POI.

Diesel Fuel Stations

I agree!!

Gas stations are everywhere... but diesel availability is select!

IMPORTANT FILE, as more & more automobiles are being made to burn diesel fuel!

I have a file that I got off

I have a file that I got off of another site for ULSD. It includes regular stations as well. If you want it let me know and I will email it to you.

I found a site Gas Prices

I found a site Gas Prices that separate out the diesel and it listed just about every station I know locally (barring a few of the newest ones) it would be a ton of work to tackle making the POI file but at least it would be somewhere to start smile

http://www.northcarolinagasprices.com/GasPriceSearch.aspx

It says NC but you can put in other states smile

Diesel pretty dominant here...

I have a VW Passat TDI and in the Columbia Maryland area, almost every Exxon carries Diesel. But if I was traveling, it would be nice to know.

Could you please send me a copy of the file of gas stations and ULSD fuel.

Thanks in advance.

Wow, didn't think this would

Wow, didn't think this would be so hard to find. Am considering a VW/Audi TDI and was curious about finding diesel stations up here In Canada.

MSN Auto List Diesel

MSN Auto list the price of Diesel in a separate column. It is sorted by the regular unleaded price. Enter the zip code and it gives the Name, Address, and Telephone # for each station.

I am not sure how to make an active link.

Not really a problem

I've driven many long distance trips in my TDI, never had an issue as there is always a truck stop around.

A bigger problem (annoyance really) is some US stations require a ZIP code to use your credit card at the pump which obviously doesn't work for us Canadians.

Try GasBuddy

There is a website that lists the latest (as reported by members) prices of gas, including diesel (www.gasbuddy.com). Once you navigate to your location, or the location of where you are traveling, you can select by grade (including diesel). Not quite the answer to the OP, but may be helpful to some readers.

Using Canadian credit cards at US staions

Hello kzod

Here is a trick to use your Canadian credit cards at US stations asking for your zip code>

Take your Postal Code, say B3K0C1
Remove all the letters: 301
Add two zeroes at the end: 30100
Use this as your zip.

I don't how it works or why it works, but I have used this all over the SE USA and it works every time.

I only use gas, but every station I pull in to in Upstate NY has diesel. There are also truck stops that carry diesel as well.

Not hard to find at all. I find over half the stations in the city carry diesel.

I'm not sure where you live, but everywhere I've driven I've had no trouble finding fuel for my TDI. Typically I'm in the mid-west to mid-atlantic/northeast region of the US. In our northern neighbor it has been even easier to find diesel, anywhere from Saskatchewan - Nova Scotia.

Next time you are driving around, take notice of the pumps to see which stations sell diesel in your area. At stations with multiple pumps they tend to be on the ends, and other places have a diesel pump at each station.

Not all stations have a big sign with the prices listing diesel, but they may still sell it.

This would be useful, unfortunately my 340 has very limited POI space. With the speed cameras and a few others, I am maxxed out. Wish there was a way to increase its space.

Diesel Pump Nozzles

Maybe its a dumb question, but does anyone know why there are two different sized pump nozzles for diesel?

The pumps themselves are not it high demand when I fill up, but I have to be sure to use the "car sized" pump as the other one won't fit.

Car size nozzle.

I had a 02 GMC Duramax with a tank filler like that. Sometimes it was hard to find a station with a small nozzle.

One is for POV (cars trucks) One is for Semis and Larger. Filling a Semi with the small one takes forever..I've been stuck doing it..

I created the New Mexico

I created the New Mexico diesel station file that is on here ( http://www.poi-factory.com/node/32695 ). I found the diesel gas stations using newmexicogasprices.com the MSN list ( http://autos.msn.com/everyday/gasstations.aspx ). I then cut and pasted the address to google maps, dropped a long,lat marker on the entrance to the stations and cut-pasted this to a CSV file. It took e about 15 to 20 hours of work to do the whole state (and several border areas in TX). It's up to you to do your state.

I wouldn't mind maintaining a 'allstates' file with the date collected by everyone else but I can't (won't) do every state in the union.

I understand the physical differences. Is it simply to segregate cars and commercial vehicles? Besides the obvious volume differences, are the mechanics of the fuel tank drastically different between a car and a semi that allow semis to take advantage increased flow that cars cannot?

The "filler neck" on a semi is about 3.5 inches in diameter and 6 inches deep and feed directly into the tank, for quicker fills.

The filler neck in your average private vehicle feeds the tank through a hose, requiring a slower fill speed/lower volume.

but not really useful

I was looking for this under "gas prices" (but gas prices are now mostly through gasbuddy.com).

Diesel stops on the highway are incredibly easy. I've run diesel since 1981 and never had to look. Once, in McDermitt, NV I had to pay someone $5 for after-hours service in the middle of the night, but that was some 2 1/2 hours from the previous stop. That's once in 30 years and a POI list would have been useless. (I'm sure they now have card readers, and a modern car would easily make it to Winnemucca without even planning ahead. But it's a good story.)

Local stops out-of-town may take some looking but for the most part, people travelling will have already fueled up en-route. So that leaves finding good sources of diesel fuel where one lives. Back to gasbuddy.com

+1.

Gas Buddy is outstanding for finding diesel fuel.

If you use EPE and load the Exxon files I update every month, you can sort and edit them to list only stations with diesel.

Diesel

I've been driving Diesel cars for over twenty years and have never ever had a problem getting fuel in the USA and Canada as well as in Mexico!
Of course if your dumb enough to run it down to near empty then that's your own fault if there's no Diesel nearby.
Even if I ran my gauge down to where the low fuel warning comes on, I still have about 70 miles of fuel left!
This past fall driving to Mexico I saw signs twice warning motorists that there are no stations for 150 miles!!!!!!! Ignore these at your own peril!

Diesel Fuel Stations

It's not a POI but the phone app Gas Buddy will give to a list all the Diesel Fuel Stations. Just go to the setup menu and select Diesel and it will then only list the Diesel Fuel stations.

Ever Wonder ?

Gas Buddy also shows the price

We use it to figure out just how much more we can push it before refueling or if it is better to top off now.

Gas Buddy, Gas Guru, and Waze have features to find fuel. You can specify the type of fuel, brand of fuel, and some other descriptions for your fuel needs.

Anticipate

Don't wait until you have so little fuel. Refuel when you get to about ¼ of a tank left, or as conditions allow.

I had two diesels and never had a problem finding fuel. Never gave it a thought.
