There is a refiner in California that makes ONLY diesel fuel from crude oil. In the old school simple distillation method you get a set amount from a barrel of crude. In modern refineries, you do this first, than "crack" the longer chains to from what you want and link the shorter chains.

All this when so much EuroDiesel is being "Splash and Dashed" from our biodiesel laws ($1 per gallon for every gallon of diesel, no mention of the % of biodiesel - so entire tankers full of diesel have been brought here for a few gallons of our biodiesel so they get the $$$)
