    Default Where can you buy "off-road" diesel?

    I have a case 1840 skidsteer diesel that I use on my property. I've had it for about 4 years, and have only used highway diesel fuel that I buy at truckstops on the way to my property. I've heard about "off-road" diesel fuel that costs less than highway diesel, but I have not been able to find any place that sells it. Is it only available by having it delivered to farms with their own storage tanks? I'd appreciate a little education on the subject. Thanks in advance!

    In KY you can get it at Southern States (a Farm supply store) and most bulk fuel dealers which are the ones that deliver to your home or farm.

    What I have run into lately in Tennessee is the farm stores refusing to sell it to you unless you have tax exempt status. Never ever remember that being requirement to purchase "off-road" diesel for "off-road" equipment.

    You say you buy it now at truckstops; the bigger truckstops HAVE seperate pumps for "off road"diesel, used in reefer trailers. Ther than that, all the earlier suggestions are good; I don't have storage, butut my local oil dealer comes when I call, fills my 2 tractors directly and then whatever jugs I have (today's delivery was 34 gals)

    No local truckstops around me have off road, have asked several. You are lucky, I have two local gas dealers that deliver off road fuel but one has a 100 gal min, the other 150 gal min. Both charge a fuel surcharge to deliever, if you buy a lot of fuel, like a farm with a 1000 gal tank it is not much of the overall price but 100 gals it is it would be a 25% extra charge. Oh well.

    Around here all county vehicles,school buses,ambulances etc that operate on diesel have a special permit to use it on-road(Collier County FLA).
    They also sell it in rural area fuel stations along with aircraft fuel(Dade County) for those that run aircraft engines in their air-boats.
