High sulfer diesel found

I was on my way to indiana and I found some high sulfer diesel for 2.69 ultra low sulfer was almost 3.00. It was listed as offroad diesel only. What sucks is I was driving my dads new 150 so cant use diesel.

it was right off os 80 94 right across the indiana border coming from IL

I know ppl say off road diesel is good for the older diesels but I got a question. It was a couple years ago but has always made me wonder. I was low on fuel and used my buddys diesel tank for there tractors, I only put like 5 gallons in and the next morning the truck smoked and smoked and I had to floor it to get up to like 35 until it warmed up completely and it still run like crap till I got it all out.
What do yall think was up? Bad fuel or something?

Hey offroad diesel is the same thing as red dye diesel. It is made for farm use and is exempted from excise tax (road tax) that is why it is cheaper. It is for any vehicle or device with a motor that doesnt use the road (Tractors, Farm Trucks, ETC) That is what off road diesel is.

It takes 3 or 4 tanks to get the red dye out of your engine.
