Fuel tanks dipped by IRS today

Thought this might be worth mentioning. An IRS agent decided to come to my place of business and dip the tanks on my trucks. (Fuel tax compliance agent) I think was His official title. This guy looked pretty wet behind the ears. He had a brand new F150 with government plates (still had sticker in the window), and all brand new testing equipment. I have the feeling the IRS is gearing up and going to start cracking down on red fuel in road vehicles becouse of the high price of fuel. My trucks tested OK, but I asked Him if he could test privately owned vehicles and He said yes. Just a word to the wise. If your running dyed fuel, get it out! I think they are going to start cracking down. $1,000.00 fine if you fail. $1,000.00 fine if you refuse to be tested.

yet others dont want to hear that and will run it anyway cause of the slim chance of getting dipped.

Not worth it. You would have to run alot of red fuel to save enough money to pay for a $1,000.00 fine.

I used to run it all the time. Then I scared. Now I know why. I never will again, now that I know I'm on his list. Still pisses me off. I don't like big brother watching over me.

I've always heard that in Indiana the first ticket is $250. Second ticket is $10k I'll just stay legal. My truck is getting parked anyway. Hasn't been started since Friday.

He told me the first incident was $1k. Second incident, $1k + $100 per gal. Don't know exactly how they determine the gallon amount. Maybe Fuel tank capacity maybe He might not know what He's talking about. He looked pretty fresh. This guy was IRS. He said He works in IN, IL, MI. I always thought It was the DOT that tested. All I know is they are serious about it and they are looking for a buck.
