Since then I have exclusively used Chevron but I think one time when we used the BMW on a road trip and had to fillup at so no name place. I typically always use Chevron anyway even before we got the BMW, big reason being my wife works for Chevron and for years with additives, so we have a very good idea of the quality of what we are buying.
I filled up at a Chevron yesterday and they had an "up to 5% biodiesel" label on the pump.

Does your wife know how the Chevron diesel tests for HFRR wear scar?
