Topping Off Fuel for Winter

Someone at the docks indicated that there are two types of diesel at the pumps, recreational (read: what you get at the marina) and non-recreational (read: automotive). He said the only difference is the dyes and that recreational isn't taxed. I am worried about additives that might not mix well with the current fuel in the tanks or that aren't made to hang out in marine environments/engines. Is it OK to find
gas station and pump whatever diesel they have into cans for topping off?
