I've tried diesel once or twice in my 8.2 T but mostly furnace oil, used fry oil (canola) or auto tranny fluid and hyd oil. Basically mix anything with furnace oil at a 3 to 1 ratio. 60L of furnace and 20L of used canola, etc. I've burnt a 45gal drum of veg based hyd oil straight. No issues with power or milage. As mentioned before, diesel fuel was "invented" many years after Rudolf Diesel was found floating in the English Channel. Surface combustion engines were designed to run on local oils. Rape seed, palm, coconut, whatever the country has.

I found your post interesting... I wiki'd Rudolf Diesel and his biographer's consider his death a suicide... Then his wife opened a bag after his death and found money.

I thought his signature in vinyl would look cool
