Only your pocket book if you get caught on the road with it.

dont do it youll regret it, Esp if its not USLD, 08+ need usld or youll damage alot of systems, wont be covered under any warranty, and could even damage your injection system, altho not 100% about the Injection system, in plain simple words, Buy Diesel from your local pump, i have had tons of oppurtunites to run in my 06 that i just got in Aug. Wont do it no matter what, Clean Diesel is extremely important. the red i ran in my old 6.5 gm diesel was filthy, i think it was Home Heating Oil tho, not the Reg Pump Diesel Dyed red. W.e it is it is, but dont run it or ^ that will happen and youll be

Offroad diesel today most likely is the same ULSD at the pump but with dye in it. It is running tractors, cats, etc that all require ULSD. Dont get caught, but it won't harm your truck.

^ correct but there are still some very scarce sources of Low Sulfer Diesel, was gunna put LSD but it looks plain worng anyway, the Red ULSD wont harm anything but dont run it, also FYI it takes about 15-20 tanks for the dye to completely be removed, and it will stain your Fuel Filters. DOT, DEC, can detect the slightest amount of dyed fuel, so its your call.

Your injection system costs 10,000 dollars to fix if you screw it up.

Do you want to risk that based on what someone says on an internet forum?

I really wish these threads would stop. It's like every week a red diesel question comes up.


To the op: Don't run it. If you do and blow it up or get slapped with a fine that looks simaler to the price tag on your truck I will only laugh.

On a kinder note have a great day!!!

The injection system costs the same on a $500k Cat dozer as well which uses DPF systems, and they run on off-road diesel.

Just saying.

There also designed to run on it!!!! But the fact of the matter is wether it will hurt or not its tax evasion. Hate to see a post saying somebody's going to the states hotel. Just to room with bubba.

How many people have had their tanks dipped here. For heavy-duty highway and vocational trucks it might be common but in the light duty market it seems to be rare. I'm not saying it will never happen I'm sure in states like California your chances might be greater. I remember in the late 80's and 90's the DOT officers would hang out outside all the livestock auctions and dip every farmers tank they could get their hands on. I havenít seen that in a long time. I think the DOT is more concerned about heavy-duty truck saftey and weight restrictions then your ĺ and 1-ton pickups.
