Exclamation Dont Try this at Home

Well, i caught wind yesterday that a logger tried to run dyed off-road fuel in his new 08 Ford. He claimed that it ran great for about 500 feet, then the truck shut off. Supposedly there is a sensor of some type that senses what fuel you are running because once the truck does this, it will not restart unless the computer is reset by the Dealer and only the dealer can do it. It must suck having a brand new truck with 500miles on it..... and no longer having a warranty......

Must be some kind of optical sensor that shines a light through the fuel and detects the red color... :shrug: Wonder if it would detect amber colored bio-fuels as well.

Well I have the wiring diagram for the '08 F-series 6.4L PSD right here, and I can tell you that "story" is nothing more than :BS:

Yes, high sulpher fuel WILL cause the DPF to plug, but I cannot imigine it could happen in a minute or two (500').

There is NO sensor, unless Ford left it off the official wiring diagram.

there is no difference from the red off road fuel to the normal lows sulfer diesel except for the color of it. I am sure very shortly the red off road fuel will be the same as Ultra low also....
