Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

On long road trips to remote places, especially off of Interstates and US Highways, I will pay very close attention to what the pumps say thanks to this thread. Off road diesel, never heard of such a thing!

Off Road Diesel - you can get it around here pretty commonly for use....off road. It doesn't pay the highway tax at the pump.

Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

here in NYS the use of off road (dyed) in an on highway vehicle is taken very seriously. The IRS is who conducts the checks. fine is $1000 for every gallon of the fuel tank capacity! Friend of mine got caught, had 2-120 gallon tanks on his truck! he did not pay a $240,000 fine, but paid enough that he is no longer in the trucking business. as someone else said, no jeep or pickup truck will ever get tested, the only problem would be if they actually watched you pump the fuel into your vehicle. I work in the petroleum industry, and use of dyed fuel will cause no harm to the vehicle, actually, years ago there was a product called "diesel king" which was a red dye that claimed to turn regular diesel into premium fuel, it was available in cans to be added when fueling, or was sold to fuel stations pre mixed into the diesel.

Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

I own a skid loader and I notice a difference when I run ULSD Off Road Diesel vs On road ULSD Diesel. The difference is the off road fuel tends to smoke more out of the tail pipe. I was also told that the off road diesel may not have the additives that are in standard on road ULSD to help with lubricity that went away with the Standard Diesel fuel that went away around 2010 before ULSD was mandated.

Re: Just filled up with Off Road Diesel

I use on road ULSD in my Kubota and it works just fine. Was told I should use off road but I can't find it readily available here.
