OFFROAD FUEL CHECK TODAY

well the title says it all, went this mornin with a friend of mine to finish some food plots for the deer and got pulled right as we hit the highway , we werent doing anything wrong ,but i told him as we pulled over , i said to him, i bet he wants to check your fuel, the reason i figured that is we werent speeding at all, but when he hit the highway he layed into it a little to get going , he has a 2002 dodge weve dome some upgrades to , and she let out some smoke , also he has a fuel tank in the bed he uses for his business

sure as the world the officer , (state trooper) not DOT man either , introduces himself and says id like to check for off road fuel, he dipped the tank and found nothing , but told us that this is gonna be very common practice from now on , in north carolina

the reason i figured id post and tell this is , i did hear the officer say that if he pulls a truck and he dips in the tank and pulls it out and doesnt see any signs of die then he doesnt even turn it in to have it checked , but if any sign of red is in the tank , he takes a sample , get your info , sends it in, and the IRS handles it from there

They are checking for that around here on occasion but all they are doing is giving you a form to estimate how many gallons of bio you will use in a year and making you pay road tax on it. This is only happening in certain countys though and mostly at large consignment auctions from what i have heard

we asked the cop about running bio diesel or veggie oil and what how were they handling that , he told us that if it is sent in and found that its not straight diesel they were handling that the same as offroad fuel and if you were running a business wether its one truck or several and didnt have fuel reciepts for all fuel bought , and you were running something else beside diesel fuel , then the irs would be paying you a visit

So, basically, if you dont buy it at the pumps and you arent paying taxes on it whether it be bio or off-road diesel, you still can get fined? I always knew it would come to this.

Oh, Scott, you get my voicemail buddy?
