Had to put off road fuel in my truck

Title says it all, got to work this morning and my truck that was left on site had 8 miles to empty for fuel range so I put about 5 or 6 gallons off off road fuel just to make it to get fuel. Guys were saying that its fine and its just dyed fuel and didnt hurt my truck and others are saying its unfiltered and theres so much nasty stuff in it that I might have problems with my fuel system. Does off road fuel hurt these trucks or will I be ok?

people dont understand that off road now is just the fuel we had before 2007 just dyed which was 500ppm and the ultra low sulfur 2007 to now is 15ppm, do u think people would wont to run unfilter fuel in a $150,000 to way up there in price tractors, i dont think so, hell our off-road is probably filtered, if u keep your tank clean and change your tank filter and u know how its been stored. only think you will notice with offroad is a little more smoke and a slightly quieter engine. but if u get caught i feel for ya it is a heafty fine

They forgot to change the sticker. As of last month the only outfit that can still legally get 500ppm fuel is the railroad. And they only have a few more months

Off road is NO different than on road with the exception of the dye and highway use tax. You are fine!
