How cold is it where you live? Winter fuel will have stuff in it to keep it from gelling so quick. I run 1 oz of supertech 2 stroke oil to a gal of fuel.

Even running the 2 stroke oil you fuel will still tank dip red...

That being said I try to add a quart every time I fuel up with about 1/4 tank left or less.

I run mine in every tank. As far as dyed fuel. I've never heard of anyone getting tested for it. I could run it in my town and never get checked. Even now with it being taxed its almost the same price as reg fuel.

They test in Texas. I know that's Texas and not North Dakota, but just saying it does happen. I've stopped at road checks (where they set up a test station and test every (pickups, tractors, fertilizer trucks) diesel that was passing through), and at the auction barns, they'll walk the parking lot and dip every tank. Known plenty to get caught too, its not a fine you want. $100 for every gallon in the tank, plus a base fine ($500 I think), next time you're caught, it could potentially be a vehicle confiscation.

For Texas at least, the law is that offroad diesel should never touch pavement (public soil) in any type of machinery. This means that even a tractor is at risk if its just running from one field to the next. Now granted, its up to one inspector being an a-hole to take it that far, but my uncle runs a spray business and one of is field trucks got stopped at a highway check once and he was fined (thats where I got my info from). Wasn't a cheap ticket when his 150gal tank was just filled to the top with offroad diesel.


And as for the question, I run 1oz to the gal every other fill up.

I've been checked for off road diesel here in Tennessee to. Don't know what the fines are but sure it would be expensive. I run Walmart Super Tech TC-W3 one ounce per gallon every fill up.
