Offroad (Red) Diesel in LLY

Has anyone ever ran Offroad (Red dyed) Diesel in the LLY duramax? Extended period of time? Any issues? I know its for OFF road use only... and thats what it would be used for... but i wanted to make sure it wouldn't hurt it.

I've run it in my truck....dad's a farmer so he has a tank on the farm. Only thing that I've heard is that if they catch you in Texas, fines are pretty hefty. But they have to catch you.
Performance wise, operated the same, but I only ran it twice and it was mixed with Green so don't know of any performance issues.

Well... I've never heard, officially of course, been asked for a diesel sample. Now i'm sure if I had my programmer turned ALL the way up, blowing black smoke out the wahzooo... which it will do... and a cop saw me, and wanted to be a complete then i suppose, after giving a "rapid acceleration" ticket he MIGHT check my tank. I wouldn't think cops around here would be the wiser. I dunno though. But of course.. this would be ran offroad
