    Im in Tampa heading down HWY 27 to Homestead and then heading back up HWY 75.
    If anyone knows who has the cheapest diesel fuel along the way it would be great.
    Thanks.

    not sure there is any cheap diesel anymore. In charlotte county exit 170 if you need fuel do not get it at any of the stations right off the highway. Go a 1/2 mile east or west and you will hit murphy oil one direction and hess the other, both are much cheaper than the truck stop directly off the exit or the other station across the street.

    The cheapest I saw on Krome today was 3.58 at the station on quail roost drive. If you are coming from 27 I am sure you will pass the 10 or so stations on Krome avenue. I have not been on US-1 so I am not sure what the prices are there.

    Hey guys thanks for the help. There was only $.10 difference all the way down so no big deal.
    Krome Ave. WOOWWW what a bunch of crazy drivers. One head on collision and that whole road would be shut down and create much delays.

    Yama

    Krome Ave is nothing more than an old cattle trial the paved. It gets better once you get south of Homestead.
