Tell your buddy not to worry, I ran heating oil all winter before realizing it's not worth the fine on the little bit your saving each tank. Run a few tanks of road fuel (clear) and change filters if u want to be safe, but ? is why ATF? I'd rather throw a quart of 2 stroke in there for lubricity which is formulated to burn. Good Luck

The Diesel in Az is Green. It would take alot of ATF to change it to red.

I think it would have a pink hue to it but I doubt it would look like red dye at all. Red dye looks like Kool-Aid but if you got green and red and mixed it then it would make ???

I ran off road for a while, when I switched back to the green fuel, after two tanks, I still had a little red color in my fuel filter bowl.
