When I mentioned the tier 1 rating that pertains to gasoline, not diesel. I've been doing a little research. Here is some info I found.
Just passing it along as a FYI. Take what you want from it.

The way I see it, good fuel is great and all, but I don't want to spend my time planning my trip around fuel stops. I go by the usual, try to find stations that deal in volume. If a station has only one pump off to the side that isn't dirty and I'll pass for the next one.

I've driven across the county, filling up at whatever place seemed good at the moment. Fuel hasn't made a noticeable difference in performance, but I have seen my shoot levels climb faster at times. Not sure if that is from fuel, or elevation.

I think all you will find is #2 diesel and Bio. On the east coast you see #1 diesel in the winter that's supposed to flow better in the cold weather. I notice a very big difference in MPG with bio and won't use it after on than full. Diesel for dummy's link

My diesel mechanic recommends to add Diesel Kleen or some supplement to pre-07 diesel engines fuel with every fill up and to purchase the highest cetane rating fuel.

I buy it at Walmart or O'reillys.

Don't know if this is the case with all deisel engines but if the OP has a Mercedes deisel engine in his Jeep (depending on the year it may have) stay away from bio blends above 5 if you can. MB says no more than 5 and above that you will take a mileage hit or that is what I have found with over a 100k miles experience in Sprinter based engines. Above 10 is where I find drastic change in mileage and performance. Some states it is hard to find 10 or less so I fill up where I can but I try to avoid the higher bio blends. Not sure how it effects all the emmisions items but suspect it does.

So if less than B10 is getting harder to find, what's the solution? My truck manual says no higher than B5. So far I haven't had to worry about it, but going on a long distance trip in a few weeks...

Stay on top of your water separator and change your fuel filters at recomended intervals.

My manual says do not go above 20%. The oil change interval will be sooner if you do. It also affects the DPF and the regen. in the newer vehicles.


I don't want to go anywhere near the 20%. I'll be traveling through Nevada, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Colorado next month so I'll have to pay attention to the % in those states.


I'm not sure if different stations within those states carry different % bio fuel or not.


Any input or recommendations on that would be appreciated.

I live in Utah and am new to Diesel engines. How do you tell how much of the fuel is a bio blend?

There will be a sticker on the pump. Just like for ethanol in gasoline.

Also since your new to Diesel. Do not ever put gasoline in your tank. If you do by accident do not start the engine....

It happens and can be disastrous. Make sure anybody driving your rig understands this.
