Running #2 Fuel Oil in 2005 6.0

I am getting ready to move to a new house and I have a half full 275 Gallon tank of #2 fuel oil, can I run this with out any issues in my truck?? I know it has dye in it and I can get nailed for running it if it was checked, but my truck is not used commercially, it is just a daily driver, so I'm doubting I would ever get checked, I just hate leaving $400.00 worth of usable fuel behind

As long as you don't have one of the new diesels that require ULSD you can run heating oil. The only difference that I know of is the amount of sulfur in it (i learn this from the man who I get my heating oil from). it is illegal and if you are caught they can seize your truck. that being said i've run it in boats and heavy equipment with no issues.

you will have no issues, just so you know after you run #2 it takes about 10-15 tanks to get the dye out

Depends who you buy your fuel from, the spot by my house just adds a dye to the fuel. So it's really #2 fuel that you don't pay taxes on.

Unless you can recoupe the cost of the fuel through the sale of the house, then take the fuel with you. I (might) have run fuel oil all last summer when pump prices close to $5

Are you selling the place with the oil, or was it a rental. If selling, and it is under agreement already, the buyers could have noticed how much oil was in it and if they do a walk-through and notice the oil is down, they may inquire about it. Not sure if they'd raise a stink about it, but they may ask, or think that tank has a leak and they won't go through with settlement for fear of ground contamination from the 'missing' oil. Not saying it will happen, but it could?
