A funny thing happened on the road: all diesel powered vehicles must stop


Just pulled onto 340 in Harpers Ferry yesterday and I was flagged to stop at an impromptu inspection station. What were the troopers looking for? Off road diesel fuel in the Providence. Off road diesel is not taxed the same as regular diesel (about 30 cents a gallon less) because ... well ... it is for vehicles that don't use our highways. Off road diesel is dyed red. We were clean!! Can you believe some would cheat and buy off road diesel for on road use? I can.
