grnd0, my trip B was reset when the trans was installed back in March. It reads about 23,500 miles and shows 24.9 mpg. I have tracked my miles on fuelly.com In spite of some phenomenal mileage it still reads 23.7 over the lifetime.

I hear ya on the truck stops. I just open “Gas Buddy” on my phone in the last 100 miles or so and when it gives me a killer price I let it lead me to the station with Maps. I go to a truck stop as a last resort and in 33K miles have used them about three times and all were scussy and spilled diesel was everywhere. Regular stations often have both the best price and are generally clean and no spills. YMMV.
I don’t think you need to worry about the crud in the bottom of the tank as all fuel injected vehicles have a fuel pressure relief valve and cycle a fair amount of fuel back into the tank all the time. The fuel is well mixed and any crud has been removed from the bottom long before you get down to there. It used to be different but those days are gone. Relax.
