Off-hwy diesel in 6.0?

Will our 6.0's run on off-hwy diesel? MPG differences? I know it's illegal, and they can dip a stick your rear (tank!). But just for the sake of knowing, will it run well? anyone doing it?

I used to run off road fuel for 6 mo w/o a problem, they are the same except the dye. But here in PA the fine is like $500/gal(of what your tank holds)-39 gal= way too much $ for me
