Don't think D.O.T. has imagination for my user name, but thanks for at least one reply, I appreciate that.

Lmao. My brother-in-law is a DOT officer. I promise they are not looking for us. AT ALL. On that subject, at best we are avoiding road tax with our 'fuel additive'. Since we aren't commercial, DOT could care less about us. That leaves state and local police - who are concerned about public safety and seldom have the ability to 'dip' fuel tanks and test for untaxed fuel. Of course, if they did - our VO tank would not have any red dye in it, so no problems there. But, let's say they were still suspicious about our 'tax evasion' and somehow proved we had untaxed fuel. They could potentially fine us for the amount of fuel we had on board. Here, fuel tax is roughly $0.35/gal. That means my 200gal capacity would net $70. During the same amount of time, LEO could have written $100's in speeding tickets or stopped a DUI...

Ill fw this to somebody nearby GS. Zooman, didn't you move back to TX??? (txt me your number when you get a chance).

Have a great trip!

It was a joke. In NC it is perfectly legal to use bio based fuels and it is in the state regulatory atatue and I actually carry it with me.

There has to be some restaurants that could slide you some oil.
