Nope... 2 Problems...

1. It most likely RED-DYED...
2. 6.7L is very picky about the fuel your use in it. But if you has say a 1st or 2nd Gen truck then it would run just fine... But 3rd Gen and 6.7L trucks would have some serious issues... (DPF and injectors problems).

So don't even try it... I know that 6.7L can't even use 2 cycle oil... (VOID WARRANTY)

Red dye means nothing mechanical for the engine. You can run it in the engine just fine, its jsut died red to clear indicate lack of road taxes.

Not true, the sulfur content is the only issue at hand. 3rd gen trucks will run LSD just fine, while the new 6.7 will not. If your going to run HHO make sure its of the ULSD type. ITs harder to find, since most HHO is higher in sulfer, but I can find it at pumps around me.
