Re: diesel fuel

almost identical, additives may be a tad different depending on what part of the country you are in and the climate....ie...some additives prevent the fuel from gelling when extremely cold...I believe the US mandates ultra low sulfur blends...for both over the road and off road

the color relates to the intent of use, and the tax....every state is different in how they enforce...the fines can be steep....

as far as running it in your boat, many suggest additives as the ULSD has less lubricity that the old LSD......I use marvel mystery oil on a regular basis
