OFF ROAD DIESEL.

HELLO EVERYONE. I AM SOMEWHAT NEW TO THE SITE. I HAVE ALREADY ENJOYED READING THE USEFUL INFO YOU GUYS SHARE.
I HAVE A QUESTION.
I AM LIVING IN AN OLD HOUSE WE BOUGHT A FEW YEARS AGO. I RECENTLY FOUND AN UNDERGROUND TANK THAT APEARS TO HAVE APROX. 30 TO 60 GALLONS OF OFF ROAD DIESEL THAT MUST HAVE BEEN USED FOR THE OIL BURNING FURNACE, THAT IS GONE NOW.
MY QUESTION IS, CAN I USE THIS IN MY ENGINE AFTER FILTERING.
I KNOW ABOUT THE OFF ROAD LAWS. I AM INTERESTED IN FILTERING FOR CHEAP AND IS IT OK SINCE IT IS OLD. AT LEIST 4 YEARS.

I wouldn't recommend it.

You honestly don't know 100% that it is off-road diesel, and IF it is there is also no telling if anything has mixed into it. You would probably have water in it from sitting so long also...

Just like above I'd be worried about way too much water in it, if it is diesel.

I dont think it would be wise to try using that "fuel" for anything other than maybe a burn pile. If it has sat that long, it isnt going to be good for anything bc of all the moisture that would have formed in the tank plus depending on the age of the tank, there is probably plenty of dirt and stuff in there from over the years.
