Farm Diesel

I heard from a friend that if you run farm fuel in a 96 stroker that there is a eye in the fuel pump and when the eye gets clouded from the dye that the truck dies and you have to go to a dealer and have the lines empty and tank empty have not ran any yet but I live on a farm and I know on alot of our other trucks we run it just about all the time

Its not worth getting fined over. If you dont have the money to fill up your truck with the correct fuel, buy a geo metro IMO. Yes ive had my tanks dipped several times checking for dyed fuel.

not worth it...especially if you have a 6.0; the fines will kill you and it eats the newer injectors like crazy...
