Question Dyed diesel?

Ok so my buddy has a farm and they have a huge tank with farm diesel (like any normal farm) and he said that he'd hook me up on some full tanks of diesel it I took him out to his farm (he ain't got his license at the moment) and helped him out on his truck, the only thing is, its dyed diesel and I have no problem running that in my truck cause I'm not worried about getting my tank dipped but I was wondering if it's going to do anything to my truck at all?

No it wont hurt anything. Its most likely ulsd that is dyed. most loading racks dont even handle lsd anymore. BTW one quart of dye will make 7500 gallons of diesel red so there is no worry of the dye causing any problems.

Another vote for it not causing any mechanical problems. Same fuel, just has a dye in it.

Yeah, i've probably ran a couple hundred gallons of "pretty" fuel through my truck( dont tell anybody) and no problems. But when i changed my fuel filter it was a nice bright red. Just hope ya don't get dipped.
