    Is diesel commonly available in Canada?

    I am considering the purchase of a diesel Jeep, and I will be traveling in Alberta, Canada. Is diesel readily available at gas stations? Thanks.

    Yes, in my experience. Although most of my experience is in BC.

    I just experimented with the "Station Finder" on the Petro-Canada site. They are just one of many retailers here.

    If I enter Calgary, Alberta and Diesel as the search criteria, 14 stations are listed.

    You can easily get diesel all over Canada. Propane however, which my first car ran on, is harder to find.

    Especially in Alberta and Saskatchewan where there is a lot of farm machines (tractors, etc.), diesel is widely available.
    Once a photographer is convinced that the camera can lie and that, strictly speaking, the vast majority of photographs are "camera lies," inasmuch as they tell only part of a story or tell it in a distorted form, half the battle is won. Once he has conceded that photography is not a "naturalistic" medium of rendition and that striving for "naturalism" in a photograph is futile, he can turn his attention to using a camera to make more effective pictures.

    Not every station has diesel, but I'd wager probably about a quarter of them do. The two stations I routinely use (which are Shells) both have diesel.

    A bunch of Nikons; Feds, Zorkis and a Kiev; Pentax 67-II (inherited from my deceased father-in-law); Bronica SQ-A; and a nice Shen Hao 4x5 field camera with 3 decent lenses that needs to be taken outside more. Oh, and as of mid-2012, one of those bodies we don't talk about here.

    Favourite film: do I need to pick only one?

    I would be very surprised if Canada doesn't have diesel. What do they run their trucks on? (proper trucks, not pickups).

    When you get down to a quarter tank, keep an eye out, and you'll have no problems.

    I'm wondering too.

    What is the difference between truck and Jeep diesel?
