Message Subject What additive can I put into kerosene to run a diesel engine?
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
Basically, putting Kerosene in a diesel engine is equivalent to putting ethanol in gasoline. It lowers the BTU, thus burning colder and less efficient meaning worse fuel economy.

Fuel additives like Diesel Kleen with cetane booster will help significantly with lubricity, which the sulfur provided, will protect your fuel pump and injectors as well as keeping them clean.

Some of fuels that can be burned in a diesel engine:
Diesel #1
Diesel #2
Diesel #4
Home heating oil
Civil jet fuel (Jet A-1, Jet A, Jet B)
Military jet fuel(JP-4,JP-5,JP-8)
SVO (Straight Vegetable Oil)

Hope this helps!

Old diesel engines can run biofuel/vegetable oil with no conversion. newer engines need another piece of equip. apparently a $50.00, easy to install, piece of equipment.
