    Will the 2022 6.7 run the red 90 agricultural diesel?

    Absolutely! Red dye just indicates it's not taxed! In illinois it's a $1,000.00 ticket first offense. DOT was dipping tanks at the local sale barn and got a friend, use with caution.

    That’s much better than in Indiana. It is 10,000 tax evasion fine. I can buy a lot of on road diesel for 10 grand….. it’s not worth the risk… not to me at least…

    It is $10,000 here in Calif also. Not worth the fine, if you get caught.

    Also depending on you state if you truck is serviced and the dealer/service folks find traces they must report it.

    This happened to me. I buy red for my hay tractor, but also used the same cans for travel. I thought it was empty, but there was a trace left that showed up on the fuel filter. Dealer was nice about it as I had a second full fuel can in the bed. It looked perfectly good for taxed fuel. They tested it and it showed positive for the dye. Lesson learned. I bought two new cans for my trips and marked the others.
