Is fuel oil the same as diesel fuel?

One 'version' of heating oil (#2 oil) is also called 'offroad diesel' and is used in tractors and other offroad equipment. It contains red dye to distinguish it from 'regular' diesel fuel. This is to show whether or not you are paying the 'road taxes' If you are using untaxed red fuel in a diesel car, for instance, you're in trouble.

Why is diesel fuel dyed pink?

Diesel fuel (known as gas oil in some countries) falls into the same general range of petroleum distillates as No. 2 fuel oil, which is commonly used as a heating fuel for buildings or as 'red diesel' fuel for off-road agricultural vehicles, emergency generators, etc. In the US, diesel intended for on-road or commercial vehicle use (which is not dyed, and is sometimes called white diesel) has to be refined to a lower sulfur content, whereas No. 2 oil or red diesel does not have to be refined as much. No. 2 oil or red diesel are thus cheaper to produce but more deleterious to air quality and machinery, since the sulfur content of the fuel oil reacts with moisture to form sulfuric acid. Since these three products are functionally interchangeable, and since the taxes on road diesel are also higher than on red diesel or No. 2 oil, government regulations in most countries require that off-road diesel be dyed so that inspectors, vendors, and purchasers can distinguish between the various products. Illegal use of off-road diesel or No. 2 oil as fuel for on-road trucks or construction equipment is still a common practice.
