it's possible they just havent put the sticker on the pump. i think all stations have to carry the ultra low stuff now.

I can still find it. Its not that hard. I have certain stations I go to that don't have LSD or too high of a bio mix

2008 F250 CC SB - It all wont fit in the sig so why bother?

you'll only hurt an engine that runs on low sulfur and fill it with ulta low sulfur. It lacks the lubricating component for the pumps.

Lets just say not quite stock.

I know a bit of a head scratcher. Just what I was told.

The older trucks might have to run a fuel additive.
