    In the state of Indiana, on road fuel tax is $.404 per gallon. At 55 gallons that equals $22.22 or $2.02 for 5 gallons.
    The off road diesel have more sulpher than on road, but that is going to change soon also.

    Pulled in to get some off road (no dye) at the local truck stop the other day. Before I shoved the nozzel down in my yellow can I noticed the previous purchaser had bought $169.00 worth. Must have had a lot of cans. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

    I've never seen a no-tax diesel pump around here (rural Minnesota). Not sure if any are forbidden or what. I have seen no-tax kerosene pumps though. Would sure be nice to not pay the tax.

    Bob, I think the rules (laws) are different in different states (and at different times). I've never bought or used any of the dyed fuel myself. I used to just go to the distributor and buy diesel and he kept a form on file that I had signed that it would only be used off road. Then they changed it so I had to register with the state and give the distributor a copy of the registration form I got from the state and I could buy diesel tax free for off road use. But within the last year, I got a letter from the state saying I couldn't buy anything but the dyed diesel tax free in the future (and of course since I've moved back to town, I'm not buying diesel anyway). So the laws keep changing every time our legislature meets. You know in Texas the "normal" legislative session is 180 days every 2 years and lot of folks think they need to swap those numbers around.

    Bird, certainly laws do differ by state and the rate of tax on fuel varies by state. However, I was under the impression that the requirement for dye in non-taxed diesel also related to the federal fuel tax. My understanding is that there is a federal tax on diesel used "on road" that is uniformly applied in all states.

    Pineridge,

    Last figures I recall, which has been a while, was ~1.45 for on road and .98 for off road.

    As the other guys noted two drums of off road is a lot cheaper than two drums of on road. ~$25 / drum.

    Dyeing off road diesel fuel is a Federal Requirement. The Federal Tax on diesel (and gasoline) is fixed nationwide, and the funds are to be deposited into the Highway Trust Fund for roads. State fuel taxes vary from state to state.

    I didn't consider that the savings between the 2 fuels would amount to that much difference. Now I understand why guys are stockpiling 250 gallon tanks of diesel. But does it keep without going sour or gathering condensation in an above ground steel tank located in an unheated area. Should a person consider burying the diesel tank to protect it from sudden temperature swings? questions, questions, questions...
