ORD should be the same as reg diesel. It's just taxed different and is dyed.

You know the laws so I'll leave my comments on that out...

I think off road has higher amounts of sulfur. It's not the same as on road or everyone in the country would run it regardless of the laws. I'v only ever heard of 5.9s running off road as well as home heating oil. I heard a ford guy say it could blow it up in a 6.4 not sure about a 7.3. Just what I heard don't hold me to it.

I think I read somewhere that they were going to change all offroad fuel to the same sulfur level as the current ULSD, but not sure if they did it or not. Now I did have a service rep at a dealer tell me one time when I stopped at a station that had the old no2 diesel withe the higher sulfur, that I could run it, but the truck will run really rough, and I still had the DPF on, I didn't take the chance.

It's all exactly the same now it's just dyed ulsd. EPA mandated ulsd diesel so they don't even make the LSD or the old sulfur full diesel anymore. There is just no fuel tax on the ORD.

It's on the EPA website.

This question always comes up and people always say nope the off road has a higher sulphur content. NO IT DOES NOT. They changed it back in 2010 it became mandatory all diesel be ultra low sulphur. You can run as much as you want in your truck that even has dpf egr it won't make a difference. I know many people with over 200k on dpf vehicle only running off road the only problem is its illegal

Since 2010 all diesel red or otherwise is less than 15 ppm sulfur. Besides select marine diesel, so it's fine...won't hurt anything.

Edit: should read other posts first!!

I believe its all the same, we deal with home heating oil and kerosene but always worry too much to run it in a personal vehicle.
