Exterior mahogany will raise one's stress level and reduce their lifespan by 10%.

For mine, natural teak outside, varnished mahogany (preferably satin) in.

Varnished, not grey. If it is let to go grey it may as well be teak as it will last untreated, mahogany won't.

Still, I like the mahogany better..

There is a good reason that teak is the predominant wood used on the exterior of a boat.

The zinc probably will make it a bit more gray. The diesel will make it slippery and smelly as Brian suggests.
You should seriously look into using the Japan colors I linked that will stain it any color or shade you like. Other gray stains will do the same thing but you can have more control over the nuances with Japan colors.

Makes it slippery and smells?

Idea! Mix some diesel fuel with zinc napthelate and try it on a sample of mahogany.Might surprise you.

You really can't let mahogany go unprotected and grey like teak. It will need replacement soon if you do. Teal has natural oils that protect it and it will not rot if left bare - mahogany will.
