I think your buddy is right, im not totally sure on why it hurts the injectors, might be too thick, but idk.

How much is desiel in NY? Its only $2.85 around here, the cheapest ive seen in a long time, and once agian, as its supposed to be, desiel is cheaper than gas...

A co-worker burns Pennsylvania crude in his Ford. He makes regular trips to PA to fill a 600 Gal tank from a well on a friends property. Or so he claims.

Not sure there is much differance other than taxes and the dye. When i delivered fuel oil a few years ago both came out of the same tanks.

Try cutting Diesel with it and see if there are any ill effects. Or, better yet, find a neighbor or coworker with a similair truck. And give him a free tank of fuel oil!

its probably not crude but drip gas

edited to add - drip gas = condensation from natural gas or separation from crude

Same stuff except for dye and tax.. My father was stopped in NC for inspection. NC LEO were actually checking for the dye in the fuel, dad had a gas engine so got passed through. NOt sure this is common, but I doubt if caught, that tax evasion is taken lightly.
