My Dad talked to some tanker drivers and they were responsible for putting
in the additive (I am not sure if it was when they picked up from the local
refinery, or when they delivered at the station) The drivers told him not
all of the brands actually had the additives available to add.
Again, not sure the veracity of the story.

You're spot on.
Years ago I had a bike shop in Miami (How many years ago? Gas was 35 cents a
gallon then . . .) and
we had a customer who always smelled like gasoline. One fine day someone who
worked for me asked him
"Hey, how come you always smell like gasoline?" (Tactful, right?)
He answered that he was a dye mixer.
"What's a dye mixer?"
He sat on top of a trestle at the exit for Port Everglades, and the various
gasoline trucks passed
under him and stopped. He'd read the brand name on the side of the tanker
and pour in a couple of
cupfuls of dye of the appropriate color. There were probably some additives
also, but he didn't
A few months later he moved up in the world and got a job as a refueler at
Miami International. One
fine day, he backed his fuel truck into the wing of a 727 and got fired. No
injuries, no fire, no
explosion (it wasn't the movies), just some big dents and an unhappy airline
I didn't own an Audi then, so no Audi content . . .
