Why use diesel in a semi-truck? The answer is simple—efficiency. The average semi-truck is expected to log a lot of miles. And when you’re considering the efficiency of your fleet, diesel is the answer. Compared to gasoline, diesel produces more energy per volume of fuel. Longevity is another reason to choose diesel. Semi-truck engines that run on diesel fuel tend to last longer than their gasoline counterparts. That’s in large part due to the fact that a diesel engine runs at a lower RPM than a comparative gasoline engine. The lower RPMs means less wear and tear and better longevity.

What’s the difference between on-road and off-road diesel? On road diesel is meant to be used in vehicles that will travel on the road. Off-road diesel is only meant to be used on vehicles and equipment that don’t travel on the road. On road diesel has a lower sulfur content. Off-road diesel is dyed red and isn’t subject to the same taxes as on-road diesel.
