at 100% ATF there is a power loss,but if I'm not towing anything I don't notice it.

From my own guesstamating 80% is a good all around blend

(note)depending on your type (year)of truck will depend on how much you can run.

I have a 96 chevy 6.5 TD,It dose not have an optical senser.

Just remember to pump your fuel as early in the morning as you can.

Fuel pumps at the stations are not compensated pumps. As the fuel heats up, you get less fuel.

It's interesting to see almost 1/4 of a tank low in the cool of the morning after filling up in the late afternoon heat the day before.

over the years my company has worked in several petroleum plants throughout the USA.

It is true that many oil and fuel products are produced and sold from one location, but in some instances the petrolum or fuel have additives that are added during the manufacturing process and sold seperately, Kind of like made in their own seperate batches or having their own receipe.

When gasoline finally makes it to a petrolium facility or terminal there is no additional additives added to the product. The product they have in the holding tank will go out to which each filling station that orders it.. Regardless of the brand or company logo.

x3 on that pumping your gas in the morning.......

From what I understood is in the morning it is cooler and you get more fuel for your money.

Cool fuel is denser than hot fuel, same with air, the molecules get closer together when cooled.
The main reason why everybody wants a cool air intake and a cool can for their carb.

The denser the fuel/air < the more bang you get.


On another note: hot fuel aeroates more, kinda like how a hot beer/coke foams up which in turn makes the pump less accurate.

I used to work at a brewer (coors) for 7 years, you had to keep the beer and the filler around 33 degrees in order to keep from getting short fills.
