Diesel vs. home heat #2

What are the differenced in properties and compatibility between the off road diesel and the fuel oil used to heat homes. ( red dye)
We have about 200 gallons of fuel oil left in our storage tank after switching our home to natural gas and would like to be able to use it in my 96' if possible along with a bit of diesel clean.

Any input?

Your home heating oil should be #1 diesel actually and dyed red. Those are the main differences

You should be able to use it no problem. You may want to filter it good first though.
