What’s a disel?

As an diesel-burning RV owner, I’m glad we finally have this option, hope to see more gas stations adopt it soon.

Not sure how many people in town are affected by the renewable "disel" pump The Bulletin saw fit to promote. But a lot of people are affected by staffing shortages that have cut the gas refill capacity at Fred Meyer in half. Has The Bulletin asked FM when that might change and written about it? Odd choices.
