    Lovely. "My" fuel is Valero, only station in town. (And the price went down a nickle two days ago.)

    We use mostly Velaro also. Hope it was not a serious fire.

    The explosion was one of the crude oil heaters. The unit had a malfunction and ignited the oil, in a sealed container. The fire was put out within 30 min. have not heard how it is effecting production.
