    Which fuel do I use

    Ready for my first fillip, went to local station and found that there was 2 types. Road and off road. Which one does my 1025 need?

    Either one - they are the same thing. Only difference is off-road fuel does not have the road tax added and is dyed red.

    Congratulations on your new experience!
    To add, off road diesel is dyed so that it can be distinguished from taxed diesel- no other reason.
    Both will perform the same, one will cost less.

    I don't buy off-road diesel and I only buy from reputable stations that move a lot of fuel. There's much less chance of fuel related issues and this is especially true in the winter. I also treat every gallon summer or winter.

    I now use Off Road Fuel for my tractor to save almost $0.75 road tax fee's PER GALLON! Our Diesel is the same quality only Dye is added to get you busted if you put it in your truck and drive on highways! If suspected they will take a sample of your fuel by the State Patrol and it is a big fine like $10K if caught cheating the Road Tax added. As far as additives they mix our fuel in our area for cold weather so no additives are needed to stop gelling. I do put some in my extra fuel if I buy during the summer before it is added to the fuel at the stations for the winters.

    I was wondering the same thing. I noticed on my tractor there is a sticker that states something like nothing under 1500 something sulfur.. cant remember specifically until I get home to read it. Now when I went to the pumps there was on road and off road / dyed fuel. The dyed fuel had a sticker that I remember reading and saying no, no that's not what I want.. the on road fuel matched what my tractor said.. I have NOT filled up yet cause of all the stupid rain around my area!! I will try to get some pics tonight but I thought the dyed was different? I am new to buying diesel except for an old F250 I used to have so I could be mistaken?

    Buy OFF ROAD,, cheaper same fuel except for the dye... Yes your F250 has to have Road Fuel.. but not your tractor.

    Look at that again, chances are it says 15 PPM, doesn't matter if it's dyed or clear as long as it ULSD.
