When hauling a boat or camper, your truck is bound to feel some extra wear and tear. Filling up with Cenex® premium diesel fuel is one way to prevent excessive engine damage to your vehicle and help it operate more smoothly over time, especially when its hauling power is put to the test.


Advantages of premium diesel

Typically, #2 diesel fuel is what you would find in most gas stations across the country. There are advantages, however, to using a premium diesel fuel. Let’s look at the attributes of Cenex Roadmaster XL® premium diesel fuel. Compared to typical untreated #2 diesel fuel, Cenex Roadmaster XL:

  • Reduces downtime and costly repairs
  • Restores fuel economy by as much as 5%
  • Restores power by up to 4.5% 
  • Boosts lubricity (reduces friction) by 10% to 15%
  • Extends the life of injectors and injector pumps
  • Provides quicker, more efficient starts with a higher cetane number
  • Reduces maintenance costs
  • Cleans up and prevents injector fouling (in 2007 and newer engines)


Additive package adds up to quality

Cenex Roadmaster XL starts out as #2 diesel fuel but is supplemented by our robust, complete additive package, which enhances fuel quality and performance. Our additive package contains:

  1. A demulsifier to keep moisture from entering the fuel system
  2. Aggressive detergents to clean the entire fuel system
  3. Injection stabilization to prevent fuel from coking
  4. A lubricity improver to prevent moving parts from experiencing excessive wear and failure
  5. Corrosion inhibitors to protect fuel lines from rust and corrosion
  6. A storage stabilizer to extend storage life longer than a typical #2 diesel
  7. A cetane improver to provide a more complete burn for a cleaner exhaust system


Premium diesel can cost a little more than #2 diesel fuel, but it’s worth the price. For a slightly higher investment, you’re protecting yourself from unwanted downtime. No one wants to detour to have a mechanic fix an engine problem with the family en route to a camping vacation. Using Cenex premium diesel is almost like having trip insurance, providing you with peace of mind and ultimately saving you time and money in the long run.
