Farm fuel/Red dye/High Sulfur in DPF delete 6.4?

I am curious as to if it is okay to run farm fuel in a 6.4 as long as it has a DPF delete? For farm use of course.......

Thanks!

In some places yes. Here on our farm we have 3 tanks... Currently I use LSD, our farm fuel we get is HIGH sulfur. Or so our sticker on our tank says. Tomorrow I will call the fuel man.

Most of the high sulfur is used up, there isn't anything mechanically wrong running it. However, be careful if you run the dyed fuel on the roads and interstates. State Police have started dipping tanks during traffic stops, in some states, and those fines aren't cheep.

I asked my local co-op if they could get me anything other than ULSD, they couldn't. Thats why our farm always use an additive. I guess I dont know about any other states but in Iowa the fine for use of farm fuel in a road going vehicle is $10,000 yes ten thousand. A friend of mine knows from expirence. Farm fuel around here is only about 45 cents cheaper anyways.

It depends on where you are. I work for a fuel supplier. We can still get high sulfer (500 ppm). But we can only get from Marathon in Knoxville. And Marathon tells us that it will be gone by the end of the year. We use it to supply strip jobs.

I've heard people say that the dye can be hard on certain parts, I don't see how, or know if there is any truth to it. Could be BS.
