Yeah, wanna know how they add those additives? Out of a 2-gallon wash bucket. That's right, the driver takes a 2-gallon plastic bucket over to the octane spout, opens it up, and puts in some sorghum molasses-looking stuff in the bucket. He then goes over to the truck, and pours it into the tank being filled on his truck.
I found this out when I went on a coupla runs with a friend of mine years ago. I asked him how he knew how much to add, and he said, "Aww, it's all a swag, and don't matter anyways, just so long as you add a certain minimum." The bucket wasn't even marked or graduated.
And guess what else? You fine folks are running diesel fuel in your cars as we speak. What? You don't believe that? Well, guess what happens to the tanker at the last run of the day? He drains ALL of his tanks & lines into the last in-ground tank of the day. So all the super, diesel, ethanol, etc, gets mixed up and drained out. Also, if one run contains diesel, and the next delivery has none, do you think he purges/cleans the diesel out of the tanker? No. The majority gravity drains, but not 100% of it.
There's some poop for ya on a coupla deliveries I was privy to.
