Diesel fuels are used in a wide range of industries, including:

Hospitals and other health care facilities, as well as assisted living centers and nursing homes, use diesel in generators that power lights, life-saving equipment, and more.

Grocery and other foodservice retail stores use diesel generators to keep their inventory at a safe temperature.

What is the difference between on-road diesel and off-road diesel?

Diesel-powered vehicles that are licensed for use on roads in the United States are required to use on-road diesel. Diesel equipment or machinery that is not being driven on a road, such as a backhoe or a generator, use off-road diesel.

The reason for this distinction is mainly tax-based. On-road diesel—because it is used in vehicles being driven on roads—is subject to the excise tax. Off-road diesel has no excise tax, making it more affordable for businesses, institutions, and municipalities.

Off-road diesel is dyed red, so the two kinds of diesel aren’t mixed up. The red dye also allows for testing to determine which type of diesel is being used. Fines for using off-road diesel in on-road vehicles can get very steep. The IRS alone has penalties of $1,000 or $10 per gallon, whichever is greater, for each incident. On top of that, here in North Carolina there is a penalty of $1,000 or five times the tax on the fuel inside the vehicle tank, whichever is greater.
