So what, your cousin must think there is a great conspiracy among all the diesel engine makers and diesel fuel vendors, to omit the critical gasoline component from diesel fuel in order to...what? Make diesel engines burn out faster? Make them use more fuel? Ruin them so customers have to replace them more often?
What you cousin is doing just proves how much abuse an engine can take, and still keep on working. Doesn't proive squat about how well that engine is working compared to another engine that is being given proper fuel, now does it?
If you have an algae problem, conifrm that it is an algae problem, and then solve it properly. Maybe an algicide, maybe a different fuel station. And don't forget, there's a thousand experts like your cousin who will tell you that you can buy a Magnet Algae Killer that just clamps on your fuel line and converts the algae into extra power in your fuel. (Save your money, there's another great diesel engine maker conspiracy that sends people around in ninja suits and somehow causes these machines to all FAIL WHEN USED IN LABS.)
