Message Subject What additive can I put into kerosene to run a diesel engine?

If you mix the kero and oil it will work but still wreck the engine clog it up with carbon and crap.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 737901

A lot of these posters have no clue what they're talking about. Kerosene is almost identical to #1 diesel fuel. It's a fine fuel in its own right, but adding motor oil, even filtered used oil, will improve mileage and lubricity.

Kerosene will aid in cold starts, rather than hindering them. Not true in a spark ignition engine, but true in a diesel. Kero and oil will carbon up a spark ignition engine, but won't adversely affect a diesel.

Your biggest enemy is water in the fuel. Keep it clean and free of water.
