All fuels are not the same!

We believe CountryMark uniquely delivers exactly what you need to get the job done. 
Detergency to keep fuel injectors clean and minimize engine maintenance costs. Detergency keeps engines running like new by eliminating and preventing nozzle and internal injector deposits, which can reduce the power and performance of your hard-working diesel engine.   
The cetane index level of CountryMark Premium Dieselex-4 is among the highest of any Midwestern diesel fuel. Enhanced cetane (in a proprietary package) leads to better engine performance, improved combustion, easier starts, less white smoke, less noise and lower emissions. 
Lubricity that minimizes the wear and tear on injectors and injector pumps, which leads to less downtime and extended fuel system life.
Stabilizers help reduce the fuel deterioration process, which leads to longer fuel life and assured fuel performance.
Seasonal blending protects product performance in the harshest conditions. Ensure faster starts, less risk of gelling and fewer preventable winter operability issues.
