Oops! Accidentally put in off road fuel

Well it's been a heck of a week, just spent $1600 on plumbing issues at the house, truck was in the shop for an EGR cooler replacement and I had to have my Beloved Dalmatian, Blaze, put down Monday.

My mind has been elsewhere for obvious reasons.... With that said I was putting fuel in the truck this afternoon at my regular place. I always go to the one side but both pumps were in use so I went around to the other side. Before I realized it I had put in about 14 gallons of the off road diesel with the dye in it.

Anything I need to worry about?

hypothetically ive had no problems with O.R fuel (of course for off road use ) with my truck.

you only REALLY need to worry somewhat is the D.O.T and if its registered comercially. still odds of DOT sticking a pick up is slim

no its just illegal and if cops catch that in your area, if they check, they will give you a fine or something, the truck will be ok.

Thanks, I figured it wouldn't hurt the truck, more worried about "the man" so to speak.

With my luck lately I'll get pulled in the morning on the way to work...
