What is offroad diesel fuel?

I was in a different town fueling up today (well just the $20 treatment actually lol) and i saw an offroad diesel fuel pump for 10 cents less/gal. the guy at the pump told me it has more sulfur in it for farm equipment. does anybody run this stuff in their psd? what is it anyways?

Untaxed fuel that is dyed red. BIG fine for using it in non farm equipment.

More oil?



Some places still have LSD off road fuel, but the vast majority are now ULSD.

I have a relative who owns a fuel distribution and delivers to loggers, dairymen etc. and all the off road diesel they distribute is highway diesel with red dye. Thats it. The only reason its cheaper is because it doesnt have the highway tax included.

TOTAL BS!! it is called off highway diesel due to the no state sales tax, due to the machines not running on the highway , which the tax is said to fix the up keep on the roads.

the difference is a red dye added to the fuel to SHOW that there was no tax paid. IF you are caught in CALi and most other states running the red dye diesel you will pay tax based on your odometer reading. even if you only ran the one tank ou got busted with. and it is said that the red dye stains fuel tanks to rat you out.

-don't do it, untill you find a way to remove the red dye.

The toes you step on today, may be connected to the aZZ you kiss tomorrow.

did you not just read my last post? i said dont hold me to anything im just listening to a fule delivery guy. i run it in my work truck sometimes and the tank isnt stained. i dont live in cali so its not as strict here i dont guess but if you get caught they have a test strip and can tell how much is in the tank and they fine you for that much and add some more fines in case you had more in the tank

I know in WV, running red fuel is a $10k fine plus the truck cannot be started again until it is taken to a garage and has the tank removed and flushed and the complete fuel system flushed out. BIG $$$$

But, in most places off road is just dyed ULSD (<15 ppm sulfur), but some places still have off road LSD(<500 ppm sulfur)

Had to park it with some real diesel muscle....
