Diesels burn oil. In fact Cummins Engine Co. used to advertise its diesels as 'oil engines'. These days there is alot of info out there on biodiesel, but not much good info on what else can be used as fuel in diesel engines. Alot of owners of diesel powered machines have asked me what else can be used as a fuel source for lower cost without resulting in extra time and money in repairs, sacrificing reliability, or causing any degradation in performance. So lets talk about some diesel fuel alternatives for a minute here.

Well, I finally made a plan for getting back over to my buddies old work truck. I loaded up my main tools with my diagnostic basket containing the compression tester, vacuum pump with attachments, spark tester, timing light, my electrical boxes (just in case), some spare extraneous parts from inventory and all the toothbrushes, rags, solvents and small parts washing containers I thought I would need.
