Re: diesel fuel
I use Jet A aircraft fuel because it will stay fresh longer. I only consume about 15 to 20 gal a year. Not sure I know what the additives are but they seem to work well.
When I was in college I worked for a ground handling agency at Oakland International Airport. We ran Jet A in our diesel ground units all the time. It worked fine on a short-term basis. However, our mechanics claimed that over the long term diesel was better in certain diesel engines because of lubrication issues.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
