Have a 2000 tractor; been told that I should not run it on-the-road diesel fuel. Anyone know whether it is compatible with the engine or should the fuel be limited to farm fuel.

The dye is supposed to be the only difference they say,but my tractors run better on the "on road".I alternate tanks full.

There is no difference in on road fuel or off road fuel except for the red dye that is added to off road fuel to prevent the truckers from buying off road fuel to avoid paying the tax which is added to on road fuel.
I am sure you are like a lot of people, you don't use enough fuel to warrant having fuel delivered to a storage tank on your farm, or even a place to put the storage tank, so you buy your fuel at the filling station, and haul it to the tractor in 5 gallon cans. It won't hurt a thing doing it this way. If you do use a lot of fuel,for off road purposes, you might want to keep a record of all purchases, and put in for a fuel tax reimbursement at tax time.

Teh only difference in road diesel I've been told is the added dye they use for taxation purposes, otherwise its the same fuel
