This last trip I did take along some anti gel for my diesel and used it just in case since the temps dropped to 16 at night and 32 during the day. I bought it at our local auto parts shop.

There is no standard for the color of pump nozzles or handles. BP gas nozzles are green and many stations have green or yellow diesel nozzles. Truck lanes are mostly black nozzles

The only thing regarding Diesel versus gasoline that is consistent seems to be the signage

Red is gasoline
Green is Diesel

Most pumps with multiple nozzles are green

If you're at a truck stop in the truck lanes with the large fill nozzles don't expect them to be green

There are always going to be the few distracted ones that put gasoline into Diesel tanks and quickly regret it

Some even put DEF in Diesel which also keeps mechanics employed

There is no such thing as commercial B30

I have used B15 for nearly 30 years with no issues

Bio Diesel has or contributes additional lubricity which the ULSD is lacking and why major refiners use additives

We have had Farm off road Red Diesel since it first appeared

Same fuel as #2 only dyed red

Ethanol and bio Diesel both have less BTU so of course get less energy and reduced milage

The only issue with bio Diesel is it is slightly prone to moisture and shelf life

Typically you should treat it annually if storage is long term

Anyone driving a Diesel pays attention to the fuel water separator and of course all newer equipment have water sensors and alarms

You cannot buy Diesel that isn't ULSD at the pump

On my 2018 Sprinter Chassis Thor Siesta, I can see the level on my dash by pushing the message button to the DEF Level. On my recent two trips(To Solvang and back and to Utah and back), I used 2 1/2 gallons of DEF (total mileage of just over 1700 miles).

Mine is a 2019... it could have been a model year change thing.

Would be a nice change. With black tank and no gauge, my refill is guesswork. I seem to need almost all of a 2-1/2 gallon jug at about 4500 miles..

Every other stop for fuel: I check the DEF tank. I usually re-fill it with the next stop...
Hooli...Get yourself a "Model-T fuel gauge"
They used a dip stick.
