    Pilot is going to raise the price of diesel at every fuel island for awhile.

    I wouldn’t go to that extent. They can’t afford to lose the tax revenue if that Pilot shuts down!;)

    The pic with the fireman says a lot. Like my goodness, what the H caused this. I don't know man, but this is giving ammo to fight the diesel fuel trucks. Yes it is. This country can't just switch to battery. We need to find out what happened here. I agree. We need to make sure this was not done on purpose. Amen to that Joe, Amen to that.

    Regen on the fuel line? With the concrete soaked from previous fuel spills it probably wouldn’t take much..
    Leaking fuel pump(s)(hoses,nozzles,handles,etc.)?
    It’ll be interesting to see what the fire marshal finds.
