I was at Stovepipe last year with my old SMB w/a gas engine and there was no diesel there. They had a flyer in the store telling you that the only places to get diesel was Beatty, and Furnace Creek. Scotty's castle had no fuel at all.
We were a Furnace Creek the first of December and with the new diesel SMB and they had diesel a $4.69 a gallon. Scotty's castle still had no fuel at all.
You might want to meet at Furnace Creek, the campground across the street was $12.00 a night for those that come the night before.
