  1. Not enough octane for diesel fuel to run in a gas engine. Diesel like 42 octane. Run some 110 octane or racing fuel see if you get more horse power. 😄

  2. One thing to note: gasoline is highly volatile, diesel less so. A 50/50 combination of gasoline and diesel is more volatile than either of the two. Be careful if you're playing the home game!

  3. MY WEED EATER COULD’NT START SO I FILLED WITH DIESEL AND PULLED THE CORD MAYBE 100 TIMES, THEN DRAINED AND NOW STARTS AT FIRST PULL 👍😁👍

  4. We used to run our old 1930s John Deer tractors off of a diesel gas mix. I've been told that when these tractors were in common use, you could buy tractor fuel for them, which was basically a diesel gas mix.

    At any rate, they are basically a gasoline engine. They have two fuel tanks, a 1 gallon tank to start the tractor, and the main fuel tank for the tractor fuel. They are hand start by turning the flywheel. You'd start them off of straight gas and switch to tractor fuel. You didn't want to forget to switch to the main tank, and then have to start the engine on the tractor fuel, because that was very difficult.

    For the tractor fuel mix, we used 2 gallons of diesel to 3 gallons of gas. We ran those tractors for close to 70 years every year in the hayfield.

  5. Would like to see if there's a way to convert a small engine to diesel, I've seen older v8 diesels converted from diesel to gas but would like to see one go the other way.

  6. A friend had some fuel(about a gallon)put it in my car to get home.I got about a half mile from home the car started running rough.The next morning the car would not start.Turns out the fuel was kerosine.Took forever to get the fuel system cleaned out…

  7. How about a test of household products? Can you compare different types of insecticide? Can you figure out a way to see which one works best on ants and roaches, and even use one of those natural solutions made from detergent, lemon juice and things like that.
