Stupid Mistake, Need Advice ASAP!!!

Pulled a dang rookie mistake tonight. Pulled into a Exon gas station to fill up my 2012 F250 PSD, I always glance to ensure that it is the ultra low sulfur diesel.....but I had gotton diesel there before so I just glanced at the tag 2007 and older and started to fill my tank up. Just as the tank was full, I noticed that the it said low sulfer and not ultra low sulfer. I thought that was odd so I walk around the diesel pump and about kicked myself when the tag on the opposite side said ultra low sulfer for 2007 and newer......ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!! What gas station would sell ULS on one side and LS on the other?? Bottom line up front, what is my best option. Can I burn one tank of LS through it without hurting the truck, or do I need to take to Ford to have the tank drained. I do not want to void my warrenty, or have to replace the DPF, or cause injury to the truck. Im pretty upset with my dumbass move, probably the only guy on here that has done it.....on accident. Please let me know what would be my best course of action to rectify the situation....thanks.

I could believe that, but this gas station is not even a month old and the new ULS tag was on the other side of the same pump. This is in Clarksville, TN btw.

I thought all green handles we're uls. I could be wrong but I thought any other diesel was only able to be sold for farm equipment

I thought so too, but apparently not here. I noticed that the tag said if used improperly could face federal charges. I don't freaking know, maybe it's because I live in the middle of a bunch of farms. No one tried stopping me.

The low sulfur stuff won't hurt your truck. As far as federal charges it's an honest mistake that I doubt they would ever find out.

Unless they're reading this thread right now! If you see the black helicopters circling your house, it's already too late

low sulfer is not farm grade thats the 15parts per millon sulfer grade that they had before the new law and they went to the 7 parts per millon. Still have a tax on it it will probly run better cause it still has the lubracation factors that the 7 parts per millon doesnt have.
