Re: Do you shop around for Diesel fuel?
ValvTect marine diesel already has bio-guard and other additives, which I find worth buying. It means their fuel is less likely to be contaminated in their own tank, regardless of whether I add the stuff upon fueling. One should be careful, however, as adding more is actually bad.
That said, I buy diesel at the most convenient place when cruising. Could be wherever I am, if I'm at a quarter tank, which is my min. It could be whomever has the easiest fuel dock to land, but they are all generally set up to be pretty approachable.
In any case, I rarely shop the price, other than to try not to be in a position to need fuel where I know it will be unusually expensive. ie Nantucket.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
