Bulk Diesel Fuel: What Are Your Options?

Get the on-road and off-road diesel your business needs.

diesel fuel delivery Mashpee, MA Some of the fuels that we sell and deliver in Mashpee and across the Upper Cape are more seasonal in nature. For example, heating oil usage spikes in the winter because households need it for their boilers and furnaces.

Diesel fuel isn’t seasonal, though. Regardless of the time of year, businesses, fleet managers, work sites and municipalities turn to the Tasha Fuels & Propane team for on-road and off-road diesel. We offer several ways to get the diesel your business needs. Here’s a rundown of your fueling options.

Types of Diesel Fuel

There are two different designations of diesel, although they are essentially the same product.

On-road and off-road diesel are the same distillate of crude oil and function in equipment the same way. All diesel today is ultra-low-sulfur. So, why two different products? It has to do with the differing ways these fuels are used and how they are taxed.

On-road diesel is undyed and can be used in road vehicles like buses and trucks. This product is subject to taxes and surcharges associated with transportation fuel. Consequently, on-road diesel tends to be considerably pricier than off-road diesel.

Conversely, off-road diesel is dyed red and not exempt from the taxes that road diesel is subject to. You can only use it in non-highway functions, like powering construction and farm equipment, forklifts and generators. If you are found using dyed off-road diesel in a road vehicle, you will face significant fines.

Bulk Diesel Delivery versus Diesel Pumps

Many fleet managers in our region prefer to have their drivers go to a pump at a service station. Tasha Fuels & Propane has a gas station (S & P Loud Fuel Gas Station, 1412 Route 28A, Cataumet, MA 02534) where drivers can fill up with on-road diesel and purchase other premium fuels.

However, there are some downsides to using a service station pump for your diesel needs:
