Dont worry, you are getting to pay the extra 5 cents per gallon that the
new hydrotreators are costing.  The refiners pay those costs right along
to the consumer.

MB(Dodge/Freightliner) has been selling Sprinter Van for years now

It is the UPS Vans you see daily everywhere on the street.
MPG is around 27-28.

The more we know, the less we know.
Low carb cures hungry but stop not craving.

A lot of people used to be very sloppy and/or careless when they filled up
and the next in line usually got some fuel on the bottom of their shoes,
which meant tracking it inside the car. Gasoline without the scent added
smells gross.
I buy clear K-1 and though I'm very careful with it I do get some on my
hands. It lingers like chlorine bleach.
I don't care how clean diesel becomes in the future, the exhaust is
typically very heavy and doesn't dissipate as easily as the fumes from
burned gasoline. I don't know a single person who enjoys being behind a
diesel, in slow traffic, on a hot summer day.
