Bucee’s diesel

Stopped near a Bucee’s for the first time near Warner Robins Ga. Took the tow to back track a few miles and checked it out.

Maybe this question has been answered elsewhere but I can’t find it.

Bucee’s diesel price is so low compared to other places that I wonder about the grade. Is it #2 or is it a bio-blend? Didn’t see anything on the pump to indicate it is bio. Price here today was $3.16. About 50 to 70 cents cheaper than any place else.

Also had signs posted everywhere “ no semi’s allowed”

Something I think I can actually answer. In Texas there are giant "C-stores", they're massive bucees! The diesel they use is bio, and I use it almost exclusively in my truck.

They are known for keeping prices low like this to get people to come ot them instead of the competition. I've never been to one outside of Texas, but generally, they make most of their money by the things they sell inside. If you look at petrol prices, you'll notice they are considerably lower as well.

It's perfectly fine diesel, and petrol to use! Enjoy the low pricing!

The islands are big enough for motorhomes. They also sell DEF at the pump. $2.89 a gallon.

I’m a little leary of bio since I’ve heard it can grow algae. A friend that worked at Jack Daniel’s maintenance dept said they had issues with it and it’s tough to clear from a system.

I also thought everyone selling bio is supposed to have a placard on the pump stating it is bio.

Most diesel nationwide is bio. I always run treatment to combat algae. Started using Biobor every fill. Haven't had any issues.

The prices at the Buckees that I am familiar with are in line with the TSD or other trucker discounts at the big truck stops. Their fuel probably comes from the same suppliers.

I don’t think diesel #2 contains any bio.

I guess I stand corrected. According to what I can find diesel with up to 5% bio does not need to labeled at the pump. That applies to #2 also I.e., it can contain 1 to 5% bio.

6 to 20% has to be labeled at the pump.

So apparently I’ve probably been using diesel containing some bio all along.

Probably definitely going to be trying Bucee’s. Odd thing is I didn’t see any advertisements or signs showing their prices. GasBuddy is helpful if someone reports the prices though.

The nearest Love’s discount price is 3.59 a gallon.

That's probably because bucees will literally change its price to undercut anyone within like 15 miles of them on the fly. If flying J's sets a price at like 3:15 and B's was at 3.24 or something, they'll immediately change the price to be cheaper. It's part of the business model as a whole with them. It seems to work.

Go inside and get some Venison summer sausage and cheese to snack on down the road.

Buc-ees is happy to welcome RVs. Diesel is at pretty much every one of their (roughly) 150 fuel pumps, plenty of room.

Their price is b/c they buy volume and contracts from the fuel refiners. There is only ONE GRADE of diesel in the USA, yes it is #2. You WANT biodiesel in the fuel for the replacement of the lubrication that is lost by removal of the sulphur from the fuel. Your engine IS able to accept and enjoy biodiesel at limited percentages, with the best percentage of mileage / lubrication gain at a 20% mix. Winterized diesel can still contain biodiesel.

Biodiesel is NOT harmful to your engine in general, only to any natural rubber seals or hoses that should not even be present if your engine was manufactured after about 1999. If you use a high concentration (50% plus) which you would have to INTENTIONALLY find and purchase, you may experience a reduced filter life as the biodiesel cleans your engine and fuel system like liquid brillo and puts all that slime into the filter. But in low percentages, it will not reduce the filter life by any measurable percentage outside the standard deviations.

They have diesel at Buc-ee's?

I've only stopped there for the jerky.

Take care,
