They are saying roundup because of phosphate levels, but everything I have found and read says roundup mixed with diesel, forms a type of glue and will plug injectors.

I have been very happy with deere so far, first email was answered in 5 mins, the email I sent out last night was answered first thing this morning. They said the area manger would be in contact within 7 days. Very impressed...see how it goes

Not really sure if what they are telling you is true. Diesel fuel is used as a carrier in the application of Glysophate in some applications. Glysophate also has only one atom of phosphurus and would have very little amount of phosphate. So at current mixing rates, 1/8 cup would have so little phosphate it would be almost undetectable and the glysophate will dissolve in diesel so you get my point. I have not actuually mixed it with diesel so I have no idea for sure what it will do but it will only take a second for you too find out. Just mix diesel and glysophate together in diesel and see.
