Can you run offroad diesel in these trucks?

Hey I just bought a 2006 F250 and dont know much about these trucks as Ive always owned F150's. I was wondering if I can run offroad diesel in the 6.0 diesel engine? We buy it in bulk at my office for the forklifts outside and I didnt know if I could use this diesel or not in my truck? Thanks.

AS far as I know I thought the diesel was the same except for the red dye in the one from the stores (because it is taxed and the "off road diesel is not taxed and that was why you can't use it in personal vehicles on the road) ((it's only illegal if you get caught)) Things could have changed or I could be completly ignorant and be wrong on all of it.

I am pretty sure you're right on that one. You get caught you could get fined for evading tax. So just be careful where you leak oil.

Won't hurt a thing except your wallet if you get caught. The fines are brutal.

2,500 for the first offense, and 5,000 + jail time for any further offenses is exactly how brutal.

Don't even use it once, It dyes everything. You could still have red fuel after many normal fill ups.

Also not all offroad diesel is ULSD. Doesn't affect the 6.0, but there is a difference.

it wont hurt your truck any. just your wallet if you get caught. I work in the oil field so I know a lot of people that run it. Here if you get caught they can charge you a tax for every mile on the truck + a fine on top of that. It dont matter if you just bought the truck or you have only put one tank in it. They will assume you have run it for every mile. I know of a guy that got caught and ended up with a $10k fine. That was his first offense as far as I know too.

Policing of fuel tax by tax starved officials is pretty nasty... heard a story (don't know if true) that they went to a truck "meet" and sampled everyone there's tank.

$ 10,000.00 fine for first offense in AZ.

I have seen check points on I-8 with signs "ALL DIESEL POWERED VEHICLES MUST PULL OVER" they were checking for off-road diesel in tanks.

Now there is a place with to much time on their hands and not enough revenue from other traffic violations

Arizona plans to stop every diesel truck on the road this year! $10,000.00 for the fine, than you might to get to deal with the big boys for federal tax evasion as there is no federal highway tax paid on off road diesel.
I was stopped 2 times last year!

I live in Florida and the use of off-road diesel was allowed for a short period of time due to Katrina and a shortage. I have talked to several Department of Transportation Officers around where I live and they say they only check for it in trucks built after Katrina due to the die could be in the tanks of trucks that used it during the shortage.

As it is owned by a tax exempt public school district, the unit in my signature line below has legally used only dyed diesel fuel its entire life.
