Not all diesel fuel is the same. If you use cut-rate diesel in your fleet vehicles, farm equipment, generators, forklifts or other equipment, you could end up with poor fuel efficiency and higher upkeep costs.
The Valley team stands by the excellent Cenex diesel fuel products we sell and deliver, including the following:
The Valley team understands that having to line up at a diesel fuel pump every morning can cost you a lot of money in lost productivity. Plus, constantly having to reconcile service station receipts is a major aggravation.

What is the difference between on-road and off-road diesel?
On-road and off-road diesel are essentially the same fuel, but off-road diesel is dyed red to differentiate them because they are taxed differently. On-road diesel is subject to additional taxes and surcharges that can make it considerably pricier per gallon than off-road diesel. However, you can only use off-road diesel in non-road vehicles and equipment. You’ll face significant fees, if you are found on a public roadway with red-dyed diesel in your vehicle tank.
What is the shelf life of diesel?
Depending on outdoor temperatures, diesel’s shelf life is typically between 6 and 12 months. It’s important to consider this when arranging a diesel delivery schedule.
What affects the price of diesel in Montana?
As with all energy sources, diesel’s price fluctuates. Supply and demand play a big role in this, especially if there is a decrease in refinery output, as we’ve seen with the global pandemic and production cuts from OPEC. The price of diesel, a distillate of crude oil, tracks the price of crude on commodity markets. Diesel is also subject to taxes from federal, state, county and local entities.
