It is strictly for like farm/construction equipment. I have heard that if you get busted with it in your truck it is like a $5,000 fine the first and $10,000 the second time. I think it was something like that, just what I have heard.

There is no road tax on "off road" fuel. That is why is it 0.20-0.30 cheaper.

If caught there is a fine based off of how many gallons you used for the year. Doesnt matter if you only used 5 gallons of off road, they base it off the whole year

I know that is why it is cheaper. Like I said, that is just what I had heard, didn't know it was on how many gallons.

They shut a whole concrete company in Baltimore down when they caught them with red fuel in their tanks...

Makes me wonder if my burgundy AFT fuel will get me in that much trouble. Its definitely not the red of dyed off-road fuel

Yes the atf will get you in trouble also. A coworkers cousin got nailed with used atf. $2000 fine. $1000 to the state/patrol. and $1000 to the IRS for tax evasion.

Yeah but farm or dyed or off-road only diesel is still #2 diesel.......... #1 is blended with I'm guessing kerosene to limit gelling........... #2 is ultra low sulfur diesel only. Least it is where I'm from

no you have nothing to worry about. they dont just look and say "hey you have red fuel im gonna fine you." they test and see if its positive for the dye thats in the off-road fuel.

A friend of mine is a rookie MD state trooper and hes at the scales. He asked about it for me and his boss said they don't usually handle that the comptroller does, but they didn't see where they would want to mess with me they would be more interested in how it works. But I have never heard of a pickup being tested in this area.

They aint gonna mess with light duty trucks. Only worry bout it if you are using it in a 18 wheeler. Its too much trouble and not worth a cops time to fine us or anything under a 5 ton truck.

Ok so when I lived in montan they had #2, #1, belnd #1&2 and off road or red dye diesel. We all know what #2 is so I dont have to tell you that.

#1 is road taxed and is best for cold weather and its closer to kerosene but still is diesel
bended is exactly that, #1 & #2 blended for use on road
and red dye we all know is non-taxed #2

Hope this answers everyones questions.
