Assessment Topic

Diesel fuel for use in motor vehicles, also known as highway diesel fuel, is subject to compositional restrictions, per 40 CFR 80, in order to reduce emissions. Diesel fuel not intended for use in motor vehicles, also known as off-road diesel fuel, has no such restrictions. It is required to be dyed red in order to distinguish it from highway diesel fuel, and thus deter its use in motor vehicles. The Internal Revenue Service requires that highway diesel fuel which is tax-exempt contain the same red dye in order to distinguish it from taxed highway diesel fuel, and thus deter its use in vehicles which do not qualify for tax-exempt fuel. In order to distinguish off-road fuel from tax-exempt highway diesel fuel, the product transfer document (PTD) for tax-exempt highway diesel fuel must indicate that the diesel fuel meets the requirements for highway diesel fuel.
