It’s easy to find diesel fuel in the United States. About two-thirds of retail fuel sites in North America sell diesel fuel, with nearly all new retail locations including diesel.
With some diesel pickup trucks and SUVs having ranges of over 500 miles on a single tank of fuel, you will have plenty of time to find the closest station offering diesel fuel. Diesel car owners enjoy 20-40% more miles per gallon than drivers of gasoline vehicles, so they don’t have to stop to fill up as often.
