Wrong on the dirty. Correct on the fine

Offroad diesel now is also ULSD because the new farm equipment require it with the new emission systems ( yes tractors, generators, bulldozers, all have a dpf on them).

The only difference is there is no road tax on the fuel. And that they dye it red to be able to tell if people put it in a road vehicle that drives on legal highways and interstates.

Depending on where you get the off road I have seen debris in it, most small fuel sites treat those tanks and such with less respect and that would be the only reason it might be "dirty" but the fuel itself is the same. In my younger years getting caught didn't have the same meaning as it does for me now and there is NO way I would risk it today! DOT is becoming stricter and enforcing these types of laws much more now and I cannot afford the fine so I wouldn't suggest risking it... However I know the 7.3 can handle the fuel fine as long as you keep on the filters as you should anyways...

Off rd fuel where I live is not much cheaper than reg diesel; I think maybe 20cents cheaper per gal.
If someone is too cheap to pay the few $ difference, then they shouldnt own a diesel to begin with.

Our company doesnt run dyed diesel anymore cause in the long run its more expensive. I do not recall the whole process.

Also a word of advice, if you have any equipment that you run dyed diesel in, be careful if you road it on public streets cause they will stop you and check the fuel. You can get fined for dyed diesel in equipment on public rds
