Yes, it's called eDiesel. Up to 15% in some fuels. Google your question and you'll get papers on the subject. The nearby Sunoco station has it. Probably why their diesel is only 30 cents a gallon more than their 87 E10.

Ethanol (alcohol) is highly flammable (like gasoline). A Diesel engine must be modified to run on ethanol-blended diesel.

There is a fuel called E-Diesel but it doesn’t contain ethanol. It’s a ‘synthetic’ diesel fuel.

There's biodiesel, which is basically vegetable oil with the glycerine refined out of it.
B5/B20 blends were supposed to take over the diesel market about 15 years ago, but I haven't seen any locally in many years.

I used to run B100 in my 1979 300SD. A place in my hometown sold it back in 2002, and a couple of school districts ran their bus fleets on it, I think most of them with Navistar 444e engines (medium duty version of the 7.3L Powerstroke).

Old indirect injection engines were popular with the Waste Vegetable Oil crowd, but many of them did it wrong, causing the deaths of thousands of old Mercedes and VW Rabbits on the West Coast. OTOH, I bet you wouldn't make it 1000 miles in a TDI or CDI with a tank full of McDonald's refuse.

My thought too, but it was on a diesel only pump.
I think they just blanket sticker the pumps...that's been my guess, at least.

I got a response from The customer relations manager.

Okay you're my new hero, I knew this didn't sound right either, ethanol in diesel?! I've reached out and come to find out these stickers were not supposed to be on ALL pumps and they have been removed and I can assure you that we do NOT HAVE Ethanol in our Diesel Fuel. Please let me know if there is anything else that I can help you with!

Have a wonderful day,
