Re: All US Diesel for boats is red?

Dyed diesel is for things not subject to the road use tax. Mostly for farm equipment but I can see that it should be sold for boats too (we never faced that issue here in Tennessee, but we sold a lot to farmers ). At one point it had a higher sulfur content than road diesel, but I have no idea if that's still the case.
