#2 diesel is your regular diesel. Usually this is marked as premium diesel. But pretty soon it won't matter becuase you will only be able to get ulsd (ultra low sulfur diesel). I am surprised that you actually can still find #2 diesel.

You can run pretty much any diesel in your truck. Except off road diesel. Off road diesel which is meant for machinery is dyed pink. The reason for that is to prevent people from running off road diesel. Also off-road diesel is pretty nasty as far as the quality goes.

the two are supposed to be the same. only difference is the dye.
we were running off road here a few years back (legally) because of the fuel shortage from a huricane. the stations who sold it were required to pay the tax on it, thus making it on road off road diesel.
i ran a few tanks of it and had no problems.

I've been running off road diesel for about 6 months now and I've had no problems other that great fuel mileage and black smoke!!!!!!! I'll stick it to the man as long as they keep it at the pump. They get enough of my tax $$$$$ as is.

Yea getting cought would suck a fatty. I just can't resist. Better diesel at a better price. I think I'll have a 500 gal take put at my house. Its a little less nerve racking filling up at the house vs. the station. I have lots of friends doing the same thing no one has been cough yet, I've never seen the EPA or State Police pull any diesel truck over an pipe test them down here. I've seen one person in the last 8 yrs get checked and that was at a rodeo in texas.
