My question involves search and seizure law in the State of: General USA.
Ok I have been in a discussion on another forum I belong to.
Here is the Question at hand.
Can a Police Officer, State Trooper, or alike dip a fuel tank to check for off-road diesel with out warrant or with out permission.
I argue that dipping the tank is a search, there for a warrant or permission would have to be granted. Unless the Officer seen you fill your tank with off-road diesel.
Now Off-road diesel is non taxable fuel. It is used for Agriculture, Excavators, and other uses that are not highway uses.
So can an officer search my fuel tank in this fashion with out consent and with out warrant. Or would they be in violation of my civil rights and be committing illegal search.
