You can also see the Infineum 2011 fuel survey if you go to this nhtsa site and look at Chrysler's submission (it's name is the .pdf file below)


The 2012 US results were significantly better than 2011 (although quite a few out of spec HFRR results in 2012 too).

The 2011 results showed 26.8% of the samples were out of spec for HFRR. One of the samples had an HFRR of 784um! That's worse than the raw, untreated ULSD from the Spicer lubricity additive study. Actually 4.9% of the samples had HFRR results above the raw ULSD used in the Spicer study... It's always a bit of a gamble filling up.
