Offroad Diesel Dye

Is there any addidtive or chemical that will get rid of the dye in offroad diesel and won't hurt your engine? There must be something out there!

I have not heard of anything that will remove the die... Just pay the fuel tax and you wont have to worry about being diped and fined, by the boys in blue.
Think of it as you are doing your part to help pay for the maintainance on the roads and highways... Just be happy you don't live in Montana and pay some of the highest fuel tax in the nation.....

Attempting to dilute, filter or remove the off road dye is a criminal offense that carries additional penalty to just using untaxed fuel on road. Gee, maybe there's some way for me to smash the window out of your truck, hotwire and "borrow" it without calling it stealing? You wouldn't mind that, would you?

if you go on ebay there are tablets that change the color of diesel so you can "identify" your own diesel. its for companies that want to dye their own diesel diffrent colors so they can see if people are stealing from them.

Like most organic dyes, the ones used in fuel are pH sensitive. Adding acid to the fuel kills the dye (at least the red one, it turns black instantly). Process would go something like add acid, mix, water wash, neutralize with base, water wash, settle, filter and go. Doing it in a quart jar is easy, doing enough to run your truck on is another story.

If you are going to go through all that trouble, you might just as well make BD and save the money that way.

you can get off road diesel with no dye, if you tell them it's for an Ag plane, the dye coats the wheels in the hot section which are very expensive. You can tell the guys that run because it makes a big black stain behind the exhaust thats hard to wash off
