Sounds great.....BUT, they usually put a dye in it to identify it as "off-road" fuel...it's meant to be used in tractors, back-hoes, etc. It is cheaper cause there is isn't a "road/highway" tax. If you get caught using it on the highway, you can expect to pay a pretty big fine and who knows what else......my advice: leave it for the tractors, bulldozers and backhoes....it ain't worth it.

Its great, just dont get caught because the fine is big enough that you will probably never do it again!

Most all of the fuel available now is ULSD - even the dyed stuff.

Yeah most of the off road fuel is now ULSD that is dyed. But you can still find LSD Off road but probably not for long
