How to find red dye diesel

Does anyone know of a website that I can search for Fuel Stations that carry red dye diesel?? I've got a Kabota that if convenient I would like to fuel with red diesel...

Thanks,
Casey

Re: How to find red dye diesel

I know of no web sites. I see you list Chino as one of your locations. The only place I know about in the Inland Empire is a place in Nuevo, which isn't a cost effective drive from Chino unless you are buying a lot.

****Disregard my reply....Duh, I just saw you listed Chico, not Chino [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

You should be able to check the phone book for fuel suppliers.

Re: How to find red dye diesel

Call and ask your local farm supply store. They should be able to tell you. Around here, the best place to buy red (untaxed) fuel is at farmers Co-op (MFA), they have pumps that take cards.

Re: How to find red dye diesel

The Shell Bulk dealer (Jesse Lange Distributing) has dyed diesel. They are located The Midway, across from PG&E's yard, between Park Ave & Hegan Ln in Chico. I believe Northgate Petroleum carries it too.

Re: How to find red dye diesel

I'm up the hill from you in Magalia, but my work takes me to Chico several times a week.

Re: How to find red dye diesel

<font color="green">Contrary to what it says on the pump, the only difference between red-dye, so-called high sulfur, fuel and un-dyed, taxed, low-sulfur fuel is the red dye and the lack of road tax.

The dye is added at the bulk plant to the same old fuel that is taxed when un-dyed.

At least that holds true around here.

If you don't intend on high volume purchase, the savings aren't worth the trouble. </font>

That's a KUBOTA.

Yes, I think I'd save $25 a year by using untaxed fuel in my farm tractor.

Re: How to find red dye diesel

Just get a 250gal tank and have the local distributor come fill it up.
