How is diesel fuel used?

Diesel fuel serves a multitude of purposes beyond powering large transport trucks.

Diesel-powered standby generators offer crucial emergency backup power to ensure continuous operation of lighting, HVAC systems, and vital medical equipment in hospitals, healthcare facilities, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and other institutions. These generators play a vital role in maintaining the uninterrupted functioning of these essential services.

Government agencies depend on diesel fuel to operate essential vehicles such as school buses, snowplows, and road maintenance vehicles.

Diesel vehicles and equipment are crucial for our local farms and aquacultural businesses.

The difference between on-road and off-road diesel

There are no chemical differences between the two types of diesel fuels; the only distinction lies in their specific applications.

On-road diesel is specifically designed for vehicles that operate on public roadways, including trucks, buses, and shuttles. As a result of this classification, on-road diesel is subject to the federal excise tax.

Off-road diesel is primarily utilized in non-transportation machinery, including backhoes, bulldozers, diesel generators, and agricultural equipment like tractors and harvesters. Since it is not intended for transportation purposes, off-road diesel is exempt from excise tax. This exemption applies due to its specific use, allowing for cost savings in industries that rely on these equipment types.

On-road diesel fuel is not dyed, whereas off-road diesel fuel is intentionally tinted with a red dye to deter its use in on-road vehicles. This measure serves to discourage drivers from evading excise taxes. Penalties for misusing off-road diesel for on-road purposes can result in substantial fines for each violation. In Rhode Island, the penalty is a minimum of $10 per gallon or $1,000 per violation.
