That's the bottom line!

I've done a lot of looking since we got our 35d. In our local area (Central Texas) I haven't found a single station the still handles LSD. In fact, I've talked with a couple of local truckers who complained that LSD is no longer available at ANY station in this area.

FWIW I suspect that most pumps still dispensing LSD fuel won't actually fit in an X5's filler tube without using the funnel; because they are likely to be at truck stops where the larger nozzle helps fill those huge tanks faster
