It always amazes me that when people share first hand personal experiences that there is always someone on a forum that want to "argue" about it.
I dont doubt for a minute that this happened and agree with you...comply and move on....pretty simple!

I looked on North Carolina DOT website and it said it was a civil penalty of $1,000 bucks if DOT dipped out red dyed fuel and if you refused to let DOT or law enforcement check it was a $1,000. I saw other states some were higher, some places in Canada was higher. It isn't worth it to me, as unlucky as I am I would get caught

Some people run transmission fluid as a lubricant. Other people say that will dye enough to raise suspicion on fuel tax checks.

I use to run ATF in my older diesel. I also ran used motor oil mixed in the fuel. Usually 2-3 gallons of oil to 19 gallons of fuel. I always have my fuel receipts. Visually it just turned the diesel fuel darker brown to black depending on the ratio.
The ATF is an excellent detergent and lubricant compared to ULSD. Many run a quart per tank. Another popular additive is 2-stroke oil in diesel fuel.

Well it's been years since I've heard that. But back in the day of non-computer motors we always ran oil, transmission fluid in our tanks. In below 10 deg we used to cut 40 gal of diesel with a couple gallon or so of gas to keep fuel from gelling.

I ve never heard any of that going on with the computer engines ?? Might work. Not sure about the transmission fluid tinting the fuel either. Been years since I've heard of fuel tanks being checked too. Much less an RV tank.

So my thought is if one is so inclined to uses transmission fluid I guess it never matter as you will not be checked.

That is correct.

Wow. This is a first. So how did the state patrolman verify that you had a diesel engine. Did he ask you or did he know by just looking at your truck model name on the side?
