I don't know what quantities of diesel and fertilizer, but they do pay attention to that just like they do sudafed (ephredrine products - yes, used to manufacture meth)
When my credit card was stolen , this past july (remeber the price of gas then), the thieves had hit a number of gas stations, but after the second one, citibank called me at home, told me they had put a 'stop' on the card, and dispatched the police-- this was all while the thieves were still using the card to buy more gas. Citi knew exactly when , where , and how much. to the second, live, while it was happening
