The Difference Between On-Road and Off-Road Diesel
On and off-road diesel are essentially the same fuel, and can both be used for diesel engines, however there are some significant differences to know.
Off-road diesel is dyed red so there is a simple way to determine which type of fuel is being used. Since off-road diesel is used for equipment or vehicles not driven on major roads and highways it is not subject to excise tax and is therefore cheaper than on-road diesel. It is illegal to use off-road diesel in vehicles that drive on roads and misusing the fuel that way can result in fines from the IRS.
Off-road diesel is a great fuel for a variety of equipment like:
- Construction Equipment (Forklifts, Cranes, Excavators, etc.)
- Commercial Fishing Vessels
- Farm Equipment (Tractors, backhoes, harvesters, etc.)
