There is no road tax on "off road" fuel. That is why is it 0.20-0.30 cheaper.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.
STOPI have heard in my area it is $5000-$10,000 a gallon fine.
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.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
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.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.
Thanks for keeping on trackOk 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.
