OK guys and gals...need to look to the GTT brain trust still again to de-fog my brain.

First...Off-Road vs. On-Road diesels have been discussed in previous threads...and there were a lot of tangential discussions. If my memory serves me, and I am able to separate the wheat from the chaff, my take away from that thread on the pertinent differences between the two relative to this thread, was that Off-Road has the red die for identification, and the On-Road is taxed greater. Both are "ultra-low sulfur"...and the same otherwise.

Second...I am also of the understanding based on second-hand discussions with another dealer, that Tier 4 tractors starting in 2015 will not be able to use Off-Road diesel.

Sooooo, if first point and second point are correct, then why can't off-road diesel be used in Tier 4 tractors in 2015 and beyond??? :think:

I am either missing something...or one of my two understanding above are NOT correct. Please straighten me out...anxiously standing by!

Regards,
Mike...the Griz

Some people have stated that they think they can buy off road diesel in the 500ppm (LSD) of sulfur version. We have 2 large off road tanks on our farm and have only been able to purchase ULSD or 15ppm sulfur diesel since 2007. I think that the person telling you you cannot use off road diesel feels that it is LSD not ULSD, but I believe he is falsely telling you this.

Your tier 4 motor should run ULSD only. Fact is that you can get that in a taxed (road) and untaxed (off road) version right now.
