Fueling Stations Northern IL

Let's talk fueling stations. I commute I 294 between Tinley Park and Waukegan every day. With that said, where are safe reliable locations to get Diesel fuel? I am talking fuel not the area. Price is obviously a consideration. I know with gas there are stations that you can count on have gas for below average.

How often and what should I add to the tank. (6.0 PSD)

We used to fill up our work trucks at whoever had the cheapest price, but we got a fuel tank a few years ago....

Well I have been truckin' it in a Jeep Wrangler with a 4" suspension lift, monster 35's and 4.56 gears.
It takes me about 65-75 minutes to get to work. The following morning it takes me about 75-85 minutes to get home. I leave TP around 0530, if I left a bit earlier it may shave off 10 minutes.

As you can see I am looking to move into a Diesel for this trip.

Well it is just a bit out of my way...

I filled up for the first time yesterday. My only option was ULSD. Should I be using an additive when fueling? I have heard I need to watch for "stale" fuel... Anything else I should watch for when fueling?

Ulsd is all you will find it is fine. I have been running the bio diesel in my trucks for the past three years. I use the powerserve every few tanks and have had no fuel problems. As far as stale fuel, I havent run into any ever.
