There is no fuel quality sensor on this engine. An engine cannot tell the difference between red or green fuel. The properties of the fuel are the same except for the dye color.

Is the truck used exclusively off-road/farm use?

Welcome to the forum. If you are using Died Diesel, you must have other trucks and equipment around. Have you seen this issue on any other truck?

My question was is the ED 3.0 used exclusively on a farm? If not, don't be running that fuel in the truck on the road..

Can't speak for your area, but around here they check pickups, espesically ones with farm plates. If they find even a drop of die you don't move the truck from that spot. Don't know what the fine is, but just the work to remove every tiny trace of the die would be extremely costly. Probably new tank who knows what else. All that to save a few cents to a gallon. Not worth it for me.
