 Off road vs Taxed Pump diesel

Anyone notice any difference between the red off road and regular green taxed road diesel? I am about to run my first tank full of off road diesel and will share my observations. More of a curiosity thing than anything else. I'd run "trail apple" juice if it would burn! Wink yeah right

Chief, you might notice a little more sulfur smell, with the off-road. That's the only difference I've noticed.

I have not noticed any difference and have switched back and forth as I do not have my own tank and the off road local seller has odd hours.

Never noticed any difference myself. There are stories around about the red dye clogging fuel filters, but I think they're likely just stories. I haven't noticed a sulfur wiff either. #2 off-road is likely identical to furnace oil. The sulfur content varies but I think it never gets very high or people start reclaiming the sulfur.

No matter what fuel is purchased, it's good to stick with a reasonably high volume dealer. Condensation water or algae along with the fuel or summer blend in the middle of winter can be problems.

 Off road vs Taxed Pump diesel

In our, companys, little gravel plant operation at Polkville our loaders, dragline, dozers, etc. use over 900 gallons of fuel a day. We have never seen a filter plugged by dye. I would also say no one has ever noticed a sulfur smell. The big Cat's and Cummings have no problems with the fuel.

I use the dyed fuel here and have never noticed a sulfur smell or a problem with HP except when I have it cut with Kero for Jan and Feb and run it it the warm months.

But we do have a guy at work who has a very sensitive nose a he can smell a mouse that breaks wind 20 feet upwind... Wellllll that might be streching it a bit but a good fart will gag him Smile

I have worked a lot with sulfur compounds so I can tell when the sulfur content is higher. I could say the offroad content is higher as I have had tanks of onroad which are high. I has been less since they started trying to reduce it though.

***********
1*Difference in color is all I've seen.
2*I've never seen suffer increase or decrease by adding the red dye.
3*Same stuff according the Ashland bulk plant here.
4*Which one of these would you deduce as a high volume dealer?
Local Go Mart truck stop selling on road diesel to truckers or Ashland bulk plant and 2 other distributors assisting Ashland with delivery of off road diesel?

 Off road vs Taxed Pump diesel

From everything I have ever been told. The two are the same from the same place and more than likely the same time frame. Dye is added for one reason and one reason only, for the state to determine if they are getting gipped. Anything related to agriculture (only) is non- taxable here.
Thats what I was told by the state anyways.

Since the tax is a State or Federal highway use tax
the only time it's taxable is when a vehicle is driven on a US or State Highway;
therefore the tax would not apply on vehicles operated on county and township roads or city streets.

lbrown, that is so absolutely wrong & illegal it isn't even funny.

The State & Federal gove. collect the money, but hand it down through county & municipal levels to subsidize every mile of every "public" road in the nation.

Also, it applies in most cases to things like boats also, since a portion of the "road tax" is what pays for navigational markers, launching ramp, public docks, etc., on the various waterways around the country.

Best of luck.
