You can delete and tune them. It's all relatively new for the 6.7 so there are still guinea pigs running around.

Tell your buddy to get on the forum and start doing some research. There are threads about this on the forum already.

Offroad diesel is the exact same as regular ULSD. The only difference is it's died. Also it isn't really new for the 6.7's. I put a Mini maxx on one just the other day.

If it's anciend LSD or dirtier, you'll have more problems than sulfur
But between tune/delete AND red fuel, he'd better never touch pavement

DOT is cracking down. I had never seen a 1 ton have its tank dipped....until this year. The fine for running red fuel on-highway is upwards of $10,000.00

The fine can be up to $1000 for each gallon of fuel you can hold in your tank so 26 gallon tank $26k yeah may sound harsh but that's what it is here doesn't matter if your on e you still get fined for the whole tank

Off road is the same as regular diesel, just with dye added.

We run nothing but off road diesel in our crew trucks that take guys from the rig to the camp, and the oldest truck we have it in our fleet is a 2011. Never had an issue that was caused by the dye.

I know this may sound weird, but when does the dye get added. Is there a way to just not add dye?
