Low sulfur diesel.....still around?

I normally fuel up at Speedway. All Speedway's(that I have been to thus far) have had the pumps with the ULSD stickers on them.

I recently moved and am going to a new speedway now(still in Ohio, same geographic area). I fuel up yesterday and there is a sticker on the pump that reads the pump is dispensing Low Sulfur Diesel, 500ppm, not to be used in 2007 and later vehicles.

Is low sulfur diesel still around and being sold at stations?

Can the two(LSD and ULSD) be mixed?

mixing them up wont hurt a thing, unless you have an '07. If you can still find LSD then use it!! And I don't mean the halucenogenic.

I haven't had a problem using LSD in my '07 D-max LBZ bought it in the middle of Feb. ULSD was only available beginning 03/01/07 in my area. I asked the dealer service rep. about it he told me to get on ULSD as soon as possible but until then don't worry about it. I did notice about 2mpg lower on the 15ppm fuel. Truck runs fine for now I probally ran 150 gal. of the 500ppm before the ULSD was available.
