Red Diesel.

Got the first off road diesel I ever bought today.
Had to drive 24 miles from home to get it. This is the only place within 25 miles of here that has the off road diesel.
Got 28.4 gallon at 2.50 per gallon.
0n road here is2.83 to 2.95 a gallon.

Not to be a smartypants, but what was your net savings (or loss) after driving 50 miles? (Keep in mind wear-and-tear, your time, and the fuel to go get it, not to mention the higher emissions).

You may know this, but it's worth mentioning that even though ORD is cheaper, don't get caught by the DOT in your on-road vehicle or you'll get a big fine. All they have to do is check the color of the fuel which is why it's dyed. I see it done all the time, but that doesn't make ok.

Somewhere over the rainbow I thought the sulphur (it may not be suplpher) content of off road diesel was higher as some sort of benefit to the engines it runs in. Are you saying this is added just to create more pollution and there is no value to it?

How about the marine diesel? Is it also just a bigger pollution source?

Is nothing added to the ORD diesel that is not in the highway fuel? If so then why is the price not reduce by the amount of the total tax?

As to traveling 50 miles to buy ORD, it would surprise me it is not closer unless you really live in a very sparse populated area.

No, I am not a fuel or engine expert.

the put a dip stick down into your tank, if it comes out with even a trace of Red Dye on it, well, with 18 wheelers, it was alsmost 3 months earnings. Driver is responsible for that. If you get caugt in a regular truck and they detect the Dye, I have No Glue what the fine is, but I am sure when they think you have been cheating them out of their Fuel Tax, they will come down on you HARD.
If you buy enough ORD at a time, the trip is well worth it. I like to be sure I buy Uncut and then I add my own additive and whatever else that I decide to add.

Ibrown lives in the NWT. Distances to things are a little different in the north. There is a gas station on the highway in northern B.C. on the route to Alaska that says last gas for 150 miles and means it.
Policing is also a little different also. For example there are 120 officers in the Yukon. The Yukon is larger than Texas.

Eric, by "First Organized Permanent Settlement In The Northwest Territory." I think he is referring to Ohio.

I would seriously question the economics myself, it would seem to be a bunch cheaper and easier to just buy regular diesel any place handy and submit the forms to the state tax people and wait for your refund cheque.

Best of luck.

UNCUT means no Kerosene or additives.
The place that sells CUT diesel in town has a 1000 Gal, above ground tank on the side of the building. You can go there and fill your drums etc. It is Red but he will boast about cutting 50% with Kerosene.
I have mine delivered right to my house by the Fuel people. It is Red and it is Off road or AG and is RAW. I add Power Service and a little kerosene but not even close to 50% maybe 15%, if that. Done it that way for two Winters, no problems, no geling runs fine. The fuel people normally travel out to the farms and pump into the farmers tanks, they will come to your house and deliver if 100 gals or more. Our temps have dipped below -40, of course I wait until it hits at least zero or so before I try to move snow.

Murf, well that is a new one on me. I might be from the oldest township in upper Canada, but I bet no one knows where it is. Except maybe you.
If he lives in Ohio I can not imagine needing to travel that far. I can get it here with in a few miles and need to travel 25 to go shopping.

It wasn't 25 miles out of my way as I was already within 4 miles of the station on other business.
Four miles to that red diesel station at 2.50 made more sense than the 4 miles to my local station here at 2.95
The savings was 12.78 for the same 4 miles driven.

Don't get caught by the DOT in your on-road vehicle or you'll get a big fine.
Do you mean in the tank of the truck or are you talking about having it in cans in the pick up bed?
