How to tell gasoline from kerosene?


From the "Believe It or Not" column: Back in the mid-60's we, who were barely old enough to drive legally, would mix about a half-gallon of either diesel or kerosene into a half tank of gas in our late '50's-early '60's cars to help lubricate the "top end". This would be the rocker arms, valve stem seals, and to help clean out some of the sludge. The cars smoked a bit before all of the diesel or kero was burnt out but it did run better in the long run.

How to tell gasoline from kerosene?


When I was a long haul driver in the winter when it would get [I]really[I] cold the diesel fuel would gel up so we would add a couple gallons of gas to a hundred gallon tank to keep us running.
