How these guys can routinely put 275 gallons into a 550 gallon tank that shows a drawdown of only 150 gallons...

I think they should have a sting and pull over the dump trucks. Those sand trucks are brutal. They speed and zip in and out of traffic, while their cargo is blowing all over the road ruining cars and windshields every where. Their poor excuse for a tarp does not come close to covering their overloaded cargo.

God help those of us on motorcycles.

Two trucks were cited by the Internal Revenue Service for using untaxed home heating oil to power the vehicles, instead of gasoline.

Get your story right Snoozeday! I never knew we had dual fuel trucks? Diesel maybe?

I agree, rooling death traps to the four wheelers on the road.

Hey CDL -A read the story again. They where using number 2 fuel oil as a fuel, not carrying both. Its common because its cheaper then diesal. If you know anything about it you would realize your comments are assinine.

Ugh,#2 heating oil and diesel are the same thing.

A guy in my neighborhood is a repair guy for one of the home oil companies. Coincidentally both his work truck and suv are diesel powered. Want To bet this guy isn't siphoning the tank, or loading up from one of their trucks?

CDL-A - This is very common among unscrupulous companies and drivers. They use home heating oil to fuel their vehicles.

I think the point CDL was making, you could not use heating oil in a Gasoline powered engine.
You would use Heating fuel in a Diesel powered engine.
So the "Instead of Gasoline" statement is bad reporting.

Yes Diesel is and #2 heating oil are the same, just taxed differently.

State and Feds need their cut.
This is why Bio-Diesel will never become big. You can make it at home.

Thanks for stealing my nic buttwhipe!

The report should include the names of the carriers so that consumers can make informed decisions on which to use. Not knowing doesn't give consumers the advantage of protecting themselves from being ripped off.

How about publicizing the names of these carriers?

Guesse what many trucks use no.2 in there tanks. Take a look at all these tractors i would guesse a very large percent use no.2. Boats are another big one.. Seeing the old home heating fuel truck at the docks in aug. is pretty funny...
wow
