I can't back this up -- this is purely anecdotal....

A barrel of oil will have a certain affinity for X gallons of diesel and Y gallons of gasoline. Both of which are extracted using a similar process at the same time (it's something like a furnace weight separator - not sure on the official name).

From that knowledge alone, I'd say that refining impact is similar...

I had a chart that was related to this very thing... But I can't find it... I did, however, find this interesting chart (which you may be interested in)...

and this one... The reserve to production ratios


Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
