    Buying diesel dispensed from a shipping container with a hand-written sign is usually a good indication that it’s dodgy too.

    Back in the 90s a local cattle dealer where I grew up used Green diesel in his jeep and cattle trucks willy nilly.

    He’d get caught by the guards, pay the fine.

    And it was still cheaper than using white diesel.

    Why not charge the same price for white or green diesel and let legitimate users of green claim back any allowances due?

    my question is given this stuff does damage engines – and it’s not a myth peddled by revenue – who are the customers for this poo? Surely repeat business is low.

    anybody?

    Would it be unreasonable to expect revenue to secretly buy a small amount of diesel in every station in the state every month or so,have it analysed and most importantly publish the names of those selling laundered fuel
