Best places for diesel in Twin Cities (MN)

Hey everyone,

I've had my new (to me) 2007 TDI V10 for a week now, and I'm still running mostly on the first full tank from the dealership. I live in Saint Paul, near Como Park, and I've been trying to gauge the best place for diesel in the area.

A good friend of mine is a commercial diesel mechanic and truck driver, and I've picked his brain a bit, but he lives in the northern part of the metro (Isanti) and doesn't know where to recommend to get "small" quantities of diesel.

I've found so far the BP diesel (green) is pretty good. I live by Diesel Dogs on Energy Park Drive, and I stopped by today to talk to them about my Touareg.

They have two pumps which are connected to an above-ground tank, which is open 24/7. They do on-site commercial diesel and consumer diesel repair, as well as diesel delivery. Mike, the manager there, told me they go through a lot of diesel, and they add the additives to the tank. It's ULSD.

At the moment, the nozzles at Diesel Dogs are too large to fit my Touareg, but I told him and he said he'd have someone change the nozzle on pump #2 to allow it to fit.

So, sorry for the long preamble

Where do you MSP (or greater MN - Rochester) folks buy your diesel?

Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

The best diesel I've ever used is BP AMOCO Premium grade. Try to find it near you - you'll do a good favor to your Touareg for years to come. Another good diesel is the Greenway/CENEX Premium grade diesel. Next best I would name Kwik Trip diesel - nothing fancy (it is bio 5%), but a good quality standard diesel sold by a company with a very seriously enforced quality control. Happy tregging!
