I suspect that relates to the spraying of fogger into the intake of a gas engine just before you shut it down. Obviously that would create combustion in a diesel. You can spray the intake while turning the engine over slowly but I never trusted that, or you can pull the injectors.

Did you include the wrong link or did I miss something? That is indeed an interesting article but it seems to relate to contamination that occurs as the engine is in use, not sitting in an unused engine
