    Fuel Question (red or green)

    OK so this may seem stupid but what fuel is everyone running on the new 2032R tractors. Manual specifies ultra low sulfur, which is typically on road fuel (green), but is anyone running off road (red) fuel? If so - how did you learn you could do this? Did your dealer say so? Will it void engine warranty - manual says improper fuel can void engine warranty. Just want to be sure I am doing the right thing. Again, I run heavy equipment for a living so red fuel has always kind of been a given for everything in the off road world, but with these new DPF filters I wasn't sure if it would change anything on this tractor. It doesn't on big equipment, but better safe than sorry. Thanks!

    No, it makes no difference, as long as itís ULSD. Itís just dye injected for tax purposes.

    Green fuel? Around here "on road" diesel is pretty much clear. Either type is fine as long as it is ULSD. It's best to get it from some place that you can trust and has high volume sales, especially when cold weather rolls around.

    Any diesel fuel sold now is ULSD. If you have access to off road diesel then you can use that and save yourself the road tax that the state puts on the on road diesel.
    Here in Ohio that tax is $.28 a gallon.
    Looks like wv tax is over $.37 a gallon.

    This! It used to be that off road (construction) fuel was high sulfur-but its been better than a decade since everyone switched over to USLD in on and off road applications-there just isnít any made anymore that could hurt your engine-so find a fresh supply at the lowest cost and pump away!

    Off Road fuel is the same as On Road fuel, just has a red dye added so that cheaters can be caught. The tax is a great savings. I am thinking that it is about 50 cents per gallon here. I have a 300 gallon tank that they deliver to me when I order it. I have not had a delivery since Nov of 2016, but will soon have to call for a delivery. I paid $200 for my tank and expect to have it pay for itself soon. Not to mention the ease of fueling. Just pull up to the tank and "fill up".

    Ya i was thinking it was all the same now but I don't remember seeing a sign on the off road fuel that said it was the ultra low sulfur like it says to use and that the on road fuel says. Just don't want to run into a warranty problem down the road if needed. You know how picky these dealers can be anymore. I know a lot of guys that like to chance running it in the diesel pickups but I don't think I want to get stuck with a 10K dollar fine if they catch you haha.

    In NA, none of the refineries produce anything but ULSD anymore. As stated, the reason it is off-road is because there is no road tax. Just like the gasoline in marinas (don't worry, they more than make up for it in the cost of convenience) and avgas.

    The pump should actually be labeled "off-road ULSD"!!
