Frequently Asked Questions
What is a diversion and how is a diversion reported?
A diversion is an accidental or deliberate transporting of motor fuel from the source to a destination other than the original destination state printed on the shipping document. Prior to any diversion or change to the shipping document, the Shipper, the Motor Fuel Transporter, or an agent of either must notify TRAC III of the diversion in order to receive a diversion number. Once the diversion number is obtained, the Shipper, the Motor Fuel Transporter, or agent of either, must manually write the change in the destination state and the diversion number on the shipping document. A copy of the amended shipping document must be given to the person to whom the gasoline or diesel fuel is delivered.
