running farm diesel in a first gen

this morning i filled up my tank with farm fuel, because my buddy offered it to me for free. it seems to run normal and doesnt smoke as black. this is the only time i would be running farm fuel in my truck. will this damage a first gen cummins if you keep running farm fuel for a long time? just curious. also do our motors have diesel particulate filters? thanks a bunch

cheers

No it won't hurt, and no particlate filters on that truck. Try not to advertise too much that you are running red, IRS and DOT are fussy about that

Should be just fine. If I remember correct the first gens can run straight kerosene also.

Like everyone else has said, it won't hurt it a bit; the only difference in that and on road fuel is the dye color and the taxes. They both come out of the same tank at the bulk distribution center, and dye is added either way. Don't get caught though; it's one hell of a fine if you do...
