Re: U.S. fuel vs Mexico fuel

I'd trust it for a 7.3L since they can run just about anything. I wouldn't trust it for a newer (08) engine with a partical filter though.

Re: U.S. fuel vs Mexico fuel

I agree worse thing you have to change some fuel filters.

Get a couple of those 100 gallon fuel tanks like the farmers have & drive back across the border with it sitting on the over load springs!

Re: U.S. fuel vs Mexico fuel

It was good enough for the JD skip loader at the jobsite. The guy that it is renting it to us gets all of his diesel in Mexico and he runs a lot of equipment

Re: U.S. fuel vs Mexico fuel

just don't put it in a 6.0 or a 6.4 I bet you clog your EBP tube but that thing clogs up on ULSD anyways.

A 6.0 should be fine running it. Farmers around us run farm diesel 6.0's with no problems at all. Can't hurt to try.
