Farm Diesel

I was wondering if running farm diesel or died diesel will effect the preformance of the of the 7.3. I don't run it all the time, only when i need a little fuel to make it to town

I run it in my 7.3 every once in a while, haven't had any problems. I think it might have a higher sulfur content than taxable diesel, but its otherwise the same.

in the 7.3......it will harm nothing, i knew dozens of people when i lived in montana that ran it down the road...and a few that got caught...big fine....but NEVER RUN IT IN A 6.0..the high sulpher content eats injectors in them like candy......Marc

the thing that pisses me off about died diesel is u have to use it in off road vechiles. i think if u live on a farm u should be able to run it instead of having to go to town to fill

you can run it in any vehicle....as long as the vehicle does not drive....EVER on a city, county, state, or federal road......

You can run it in any vehicle as long as you don't get caught. I don't advocate it to do as practice but I don't see too many DOT cops pulling pickups over.

P.S. power95, you ought to stuff a 302 in that CJ...

the hiway patroll refers to it as "sticking" the tank in montana because the device they use for the sample looks like a flexable eye dropper and is rigid ....so hench the "sticking"....but anyway i have been in 3 or 4 vehicles that have been checked and know dozens of people who have been checked....usually its because of a tank in the bed that makes it easy to fill the tank with off road fuel and then put it in the truck later.....but remember...the dye residue is in the tank for at least 5-6 tanks of clear fuel....it coats things and is visable for a long time...so its a pretty big risk.......Marc

There was a thread on this topic or something like it a while back. I think that it's probably something they pay a lot closer attention to in the farming communities. There are a few farms nearby where I live, but they are very small and i'm sure that the land won't last long with as much as they've built up this area. I'm in the city pretty much so I don't think many cops if any at all know some guys may or may not be doing it. Now I don't doubt at all that they're checking trucks for it in the outlying areas especially once out of the 9 county area. There's a ton of land in northern Indiana used for farming. Maybe farmboy can shed some light, eh? What d'ya say Ogle?
