They no longer dip to test. They use an battery powered sniffer that tests the tailpipe, with the engine off. It can tell if there has ever been road diesel in it. Next door farmer got hit with a $ 5,000.00 fine. He was at a farm auction. Welcome to Texas.
Guess I better not go to Texas. Off-road diesel was all we could get for two months after Katrina, we even got an EPA waiver letter.

I hope I still have that letter in the glove box.

I noticed a couple of stations out on the west side of Orlando sell "off-road diesel", of course it cost quite a bit less.

So my pea brain gets to thinking, I have an older RV ('97). Is this off road diesel just the stuff they used to sell before the mandates for the ultra low sulfer? If so, is it safe to run in my older RV?

OK, let me have it.
