We bought our diesel tank and pump from the COOP, and to get some fuel delivered just grab the IPhone, hit dial, and the fuel tanker magically shows up.  The lower cost of off road or farm diesel is because no road taxes are levied which is why you never, never want to get caught on the road with it, say in your truck.  Might as well sell the truck to pay the fines.  Around here, the troopers will set up stings at the farm shows and cattle auctions and test everybody's tank and see what color it come up.  If somebody has been filling their pickumup truck at their farm tractor fuel tank, they will have their evening ruined.  It never happened to me, but a buddy hauling logs got stopped on the side of the road and had his fuel tested.  It didn't end well.   

I believe the off road is a kinder blend for tractors and other heavy diesels, but it results in higher pollution, so can't be used for on road use. 
 
We started buying our propane fork lift bottles by the delivery truck, also.  It's cheaper than retail, and again, all I have to do is dial the iPhone and magic, another truck shows up. 

Good for you Peter, I hope the board return works out.

Oil man coming Wednesday,  8)
Called Ross [Wood Mizer of Maine] Getting a price on a board return for the edger.
It will be nice to send a flinch in the edger, hit a switch, lumber and waste flips on a conveyor then all comes back to me. Don't even have to move my feet.

Is this on WMs website? I'd like to see how it works.

Around here the Highway Man hardly ever check local farmers, if they do at all but By Cracky they will flood all the campgrounds and Theme Park and check all the out of state RV'S and 5th wheels for off road fuel.

My daughter works for a major fuel distributor and transport company that delivers fuel in six or so states. The diesel comes through the pipeline the same.  Dye is added at the terminal as it is loaded on tanker trucks. Most all diesel sold now is low sulfur whether on-road or off-road fuel. Essentially the only difference is tax and dye.  Around here a few stations sell off road diesel, sometimes because it doesn't sell quickly they have problems with condensation and other age related problems.

Watch pump labeling when traveling, auto/light truck diesel sometimes has as much as 20% bio.  That's what gels so bad with bio.  The 5% not so much.

Used to keep a pump tank in my truck bed to refuel equipment at job sites, then about 2010 all of a sudden every time I got off the tpk in Breezewood Pa I'd get pulled over by pa dept of rev and they'd stick my truck tank, got tired of the hassle after the first dozen "inspections" and pulled the tank out of the truck. Not sure if it's true but heard the fine was $1000 per gallon of capacity of the trucks installed fuel tanks, I have a 38 gallon tank so yep, I'd just have to leave them the truck. Also saw it a lot at horse shows in Virginia, both checking for dyed fuel and GCWV registrations on towing vehicles. Lots of big fines levied.

You can run off road in your truck, Just have a bunch of empty jugs of ATF in the back rolling around.

I actually had to do that once, add ATF, had an injector start sticking bad and I figured, what the heck do I have to loose? Within 10 miles it actually cleaned itself up. Now I just use blue 2 cycle oil instead.

Got the log deck all loaded for tomorrow, everything filled up with fuel, lumber moved, ready to go.  at 9 pm.







Go to pull away from the fuel tank.  Backhoe turns kinda slow and funny feeling.  Look down and
















Put the forks down so the front tires are in the air, unlock the brake pedals so I can steer with the back brakes and drive over close to the air compressor.  Got the tire back on the bead seated nice without having to take the chains off.  awesome! 









This tire has a slow leak and has come off before.  So I figured it had just got low and slipped off.  Nope.  Come to find out theres a hole in the sidewall.  Great...with a TT coming tomorrow after a load.  Gonna try and plug it tomorrow am gonna order a new tire from a tire company over in VT.  Hope I can hold air enough with a plug to get by.  Another gas station supper and just got back hone..and I had a good dinner at home I was looking forward to,,,itíll keep :D ...  All in a day and night sawing wood at Knight Sawmill LLC :D

I put tubes in all my front tires of the tractors. One see the woods and can see why them would bother. The other ones mostly only see grass. But as soon as they go flat a tube is put in.
