The difference is in their additive packages most likely

Before they started the LSD, ULSD nonsence all on highway diesel was green (at least around here is was). In your case could the green be LSD and the yellow ULSD?

I always thought that the dye used for on road, taxable, fuel was the same nationwide; how else could they spot non taxed fuel being used in on road vehicles.
Here in the Northeast, heating oil is dyed red, but there are no 'off highway' fuel pumps near us so I don't know what color that is-though I do recall making alot of bulk deliveries to off highway users with home heating oil.

Off-road is always red.
I filled up at a pump in Sturgis, SD that had four or five different types of fuel to choose from (#1, #2, Winter Blend, Off Road, Kerosene...) it would make sense that each one might have a different color to make it easily distinguishable.

Yes, I just found a letter by CAT that says the same, but I did not know that there is also a blue, may or may not be ulsd but is only for buses, trains and charter boat owners, and, according to CAT the third is clear or the stuff we use at the pump for on highway use, ulsd and the most heavily taxed.

Sorry, I tried to post the link but it isn't working.
