Don't get caught using off road fuel (red diesel I'm assuming). Big fines.

It' can range form $500 to $5000+ for running off road fuel on road, just deal with the lower fuel milage for a few months.

If your truck is registered for public roads and you get caught with it it is $5-10k. Only tractors and dedicated farm vehicles are suppose to run it.

So yes, it does matter!
