Default Discussions about running non-taxed fuel

I am just now hereby documenting what has been long-time TDIClub policy. In short, there's nothing new about this.

Per the Forum Rules , specifically:
[7]Do not discuss, suggest, engage, or encourage any illegal activity on the forums. Linking to locations that deal with any such activity are also forbidden.
Using fuels in your TDI for which road taxes have been not paid, e.g. home heating oil, jet fuel, etc., are illegal felonies in most jurisdictions, therefore discussions about the practice are not allowed on the forums, regardless of attempts to skirt around the rule. It is noted that a number of things being discussed in the forums do not meet the test of legality to the letter of the law; the line has to be drawn somewhere, and it starts here.

Threads and posts found to flout this rule will be locked or blackholed. Repeated violations or arguments against moderators will result in corresponding disciplinary actions at the moderator's/administrator's discretion.

Example: http://tax.illinois.gov/Motorfuel/Dy...quirements.htm
(rules may vary from state-to-state)
What are the violations for not properly using dyed diesel?

  • Knowingly selling or attempting to sell dyed diesel fuel for highway use:
    • First Offense: $1,000 fine Class A misdemeanor.
    • Second or Subsequent Offense: $5,000 fine Class 4 felony.
  • Knowingly sell, store, or transport dyed diesel fuel without the required notices:
    • First Offense: $500 fine
    • Second or Subsequent Offense: $1,000 fine
  • Having dyed diesel in the fuel tanks attached to a motor vehicle required to be registered for highway purposes:
    • First Offense: $1,000 fine, Class A misdemeanor
    • Second or Subsequent Offense: $5,000 Class 4 felony
  • Knowingly selling or attempting to sell dyed diesel fuel for highway use or for use in a recreational-type watercraft:
    • First Offense: $1,000 fine Class 4 felony.
    • Second or Subsequent Offense: $5,000 fine Class 2 felony.
  • Knowingly possessing dyed diesel for use in recreational-type watercraft:
    • First Offense: $1,000 fine Class A misdemeanor
    • Second or Subsequent Offense: $5,000 Class 2 felony
How are violations discovered?

  • Word-of-mouth or anonymous referrals
  • Account reviews
  • Audits
  • Site inspections
