Off-road diesel is the same as standard diesel, except it doesn’t have highway taxes on it and is dyed for identification purposes.
Diesel fuel is used in a variety of things that go beyond the pickup trucks and semi-trucks that travel the highways in the Lincolnton, North Carolina area. There are many applications for diesel-fueled equipment that would not be subject to the highway taxes that are applied to diesel fuel. It is for this reason that there is a separate option for purchasing diesel. At Bumgarner Oil, we carry off-road diesel for those applications so you can save quite a bit of money on each gallon you purchase.
Off-road diesel is the exact same fuel as the diesel for use on the highway. The only differences are that you don’t pay the taxes on it and it has been dyed so that it can be confirmed it isn’t being used in an illegal manner. The fines are quite steep if someone is found to put this fuel in their on-road vehicles, so be sure you do not get them mixed up. The dye color helps you easily tell what you are putting into the tank of your truck.
Off-road diesel can be used in farming equipment and other diesel engines. As has been the case since 1954, we offer exceptional quality and customer service for any of the fuels we carry. You can be confident that your diesel engines will run well using our off-road diesel and that our prices are competitive. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about which applications you can legally use off-road diesel for, and we’ll be happy to help you avoid a potential fine.
