I accidently put about 20 gal of low Sulfer off road fuel in my 2010 6.4 drove about 30 miles with no problems. Does any one no if they will develop

Off road diesel is the same with dye added because the road usage tax is not added to it. Same stuff as on road diesel. If you develop problems it won't be because of the fuel. The problem is if they stick your tank and find it running down the road you're subject to a big fine.

Just search some threads on this.
It is for off road use, therefore not taxed and illegal to run on road.
For the most part it is the same ULSD, just dyed. If someone has some old stockpiles it may be LSD. Other issue would be poor filtering and old, watered down, dirty stockpiles that don't get moved often. With the fuel systems being as finicky as they are on a 6.4 and especially 6.7, I wouldn't do it.

The Fuel system is very picky and of course, Very Expensive to repair.

I have heard, but am not 100% sure on this, but running the off road could void the warranty. The fuel pump has a sticker on it, and if you ever have any issues with the truck, the dealer can tell if it has ran off road, as it will change the color of the sticker on the pump. Just a FYI.
