Just in case anybody was having problems after a recent fill up in Texas.

The main thing I do is try to avoid fueling when (or immediately after) the tankers are dumping. This stirs water and dirt up from the bottom of the tanks. There is some in the bottom of all large tanks. Other than that it's just avoiding stations that sell small amounts of diesel.

Doesn't sound like an issue with stirred-up water and dirt. This sounds like something for all the bio-diesel afficianados out there to ponder:

The issue was with contaminated biodiesel, but a new release published by Pilot Flying J claims that the issue has been solved and the pumps are back on.

Does anybody really know exactly what garbage is used for the "bio" content?

Probably depends on who the supplier is at the time and who's doing the blending. Also wonder if it ever gets tested. Years ago each tanker car of home heating oil was tested and each semi truck load of Jet A was sampled. Do they ever sample this stuff?

On rare occasions, ANY fuel station can get a load of bad fuel. A few years ago, the Flying J at Carlyle, PA got a load of water laden fuel and it caused havoc for a lot of people. We fueled up there just hours before the problems occurred and were thankful we did not get any of the bad diesel. F-J did honor support for all customers who experienced fuel related problems and could prove it was related to fuel purchased at the facility in question. This is why everyone should carry spare fuel filters and be proficient at changing them when necessary.

It can happen to anyone. A few months ago the Exxon refinery in Baton Rouge had a bad blend of gasoline leave the refinery. It went to quite a few stations in south Louisiana. Exxon paid for all repairs caused by their gas.
