Don't believe everything you read on the internet. No one burns half gasoline, you're getting confused with kerosene.............

Hey Ford Motor Company


but it's a thing up north in hard Winters that they do, mix 50/50 gas and diesel. it's supposed to be good for the truck. I don't have a need for it in Houston and there are countless stories of people accidentally filling up on gasoline, catching themselves and just pouring diesel on top and zero issues, more power, etc..

go ask yourself here. scroll down to the late 7.3 section and ask.

Hey Ford Motor Company


The only thing mixing gas and diesel is good for is mechanics!

That useally can cause few issue when it was burning gazoline with diesel fuel and I have see some damage to them espcally if go over 15% gazoline level and with half and half brew useally don't run very well due it will have uneven burning and it will produce more knocking noise.

You will loose about 15 to 20% of total power level right there due the gazoline is lower BTU value.

And also it will be hard on some injector pump and related parts due the gazoline is " dry fuel " it will cause some issue with pump seal which I have see it from time to time.

Note this part not only affect Navistar engines but it will cover broad area of engines.

For me I use Jet fuel I can find it otherwise burn kenornse that will be no issue but some northen gaz station you may get lucky to find #1 ULSD if you do all by means get it for super cold weather useage.

you will not loose much power with this mix probly 10 to 15% the most but of course the fuel milage do drop a bit in super cold weather.

Merci,
Marc

No need for me to ask or rely on random answers from the internet. I've plowed snow commercially here for 18 years, often with diesels, and can tell you that no one purposely runs gasoline. Lot's of folks run some kerosene though. But what do I know, I've only owned diesel trucks and equipment for 15 years..............

BTW, I've been around construction long enough to see more than one co-worker/laborer put the wrong fuel in at the pump.............

Hey Ford Motor Company


no need for me to rely on one disgruntled diesel "expert" on the internet, either. I know what what I know from people who know the 7.3. you do not.
