Just like no two vehicles are exactly the same, no two fuels are either. The quality of fuel in the USA varies widely from good to absolute junk. Unfortunately, more of it tends to be towards the junky side than the good side. Even "Premium" diesel only needs to exceede the absolute minimum specifications in two of over 9 critical areas like: Cetane, Energy content (BTU/Gal), Clouding Pour Point, Moisture content, Viscosity and lubricity to name a few. Remember, only TWO of those needs to be in the "good" or "superior" range to be considered a "Premium" fuel.
