Sean, do you have many farmers using the site?
If not, this is HIGHLY HIGHLY NAUGHTY.
Shitloads of people use it in their cars (illegally- you can get fined). It's only meant for use in agricultural vehicles and cranes and such like.
but i'm excited
being IN THE STICKS we get lots of stories in the local paper about people stealing red diesel from tractors etc.
First they'll look for drugs, then if they don't find them they look for red diesel
In the United Kingdom, "red diesel" is dyed gas oil for registered agricultural or construction vehicles such as tractors, excavators, cranes and some other non-road applications such as boats. Red diesel carries a significantly reduced tax levy compared to un-dyed diesel fuel used in ordinary road vehicles. As red diesel is widely available in the UK, the authorities regularly carry out roadside checks, highly unlikely in a metropolitan area but much more likely in a rural area. Unauthorized use incurs heavy fines but despite this spot checks have occasionally found as many as one in five motorists using red diesel. Red diesel can also be used in road vehicles which are registered as SORN with the DVLA provided they are only used on private land. There is also no need to tax a vehicle that is not used on a public road.

TI'd imagine that the people that he ads are aimed at on this forum are end-users/ consumers, and therefore not really B2B advertising. SO not much use for red diesel for the average DiS user, huh?
now I've seen the ad, I'm obviously getting some. Chances of getting stopped and roadside dipped in london are minimal.
Just wondering. For research purposes. Obviously
I am an officer of the court. I would not break the law/ evade my duties in such a manner.
(if the ad pops up again, I'll mail you the link).
if it's google targeted advertising, PO, it's because YOU have in fact been naughty.
Dun dun DUUUUUUUUUN
I don't know what any of this means, but you can vouch that I am not the naughty type and i am therefore blaming some bad coding or something.
THEO, CAN YOU DELETE THIS THREAD/ ME PLEASE?
It means that some of the banners on this website change depending on things you're browsing yourself.
I have not been browsing for red diesel, I promise!

1 in 5 people use it? thats crazily high imo
now that I've type that it sounds like bullshit but I'm sure someone told me that.
Why would I make it up?
see if Darren can sort it.
or if you do don't say I said it.
used it as an income stream even setting up 'pop-up' petrol stations.
