    Same as the nicnames for onroad diesel, Fuel oil, Diesel, Heating oil, #2 diesel, Ect ect,

    Years ago all the diesel fuel was the same , highsulpher fuel and it was the same color they had no idea back then if it had taxes paid on it or not , So here comes some wacko . and his tree huggers in hand spouting out lets get the sulpher out of diesel fuel. .

    Well They did and started sticking red dye in the high sulpher diesel , The argument about it is all the same just the dye is the only diffrence is pure bullcrap , Many many places the off road diesel is the same stuff that it all was before we ever heard of Low sulpher and Offroad .

    Switching between the two is another bunch of hogwash The fuel syestems of todays diesel's are built to withstand both , The Older diesels that had the seal problems was because the method used to removed the sulpher also took along the lubricity of the diesel fuel ,

    Our equipment has seen both ran thru for years and not one problem. though i swear to me with out a dyno to test em they ran better on the Off road High sulpher diesel .

    They are not worried about sulpher in the diesel it was all a bunch iof crap to start the red dye stuff , But yet guess who runs the most off road diesel thats high sulpher up and down the highways daily .

    Good ole Uncle sam thats who .

    And your a bigger pud f uck because you dont even know what your talking about , Sulpher did / does not lubricate a injector pump , You ever seen dry sulpher ????????? Didint think so

    That is 100,000 Percent bullshit , They are not the same friggen fuel at all . maybe out of 50 states maybe 2-3 have low sulpher as off road but the rest dont , How about educating your self some scaby before you go popping off .

    Ever add some dye neutralizer to turn the color of the fuel back to original? Works slick as snot. I'm not running off road fuel on road, but i watched a guy dump the stuff in a white plastic tank and litterally turn it into on road tint.
