Running Kerosene

With the rising fuel prices up to $4.09 a gallon here in Seymour, In, I seen Kerosene was down to $3.39 a gallon and was wondering what it would do to the injectors on a late 99-03 7.3.. Anyone got any information?

Regular diesel is #2. I think kerosene is basically #1 diesel. I've heard you don't get as much "bang for your buck" from kerosene; aka your truck won't run nearly as good off of it and I think fuel mileage suffers also so in the end, you're not really saving any money. That's if I remember correctly.

Any money you'd save on fuel you'd be putting into your injectors shortly. The lubricity content of kerosene is way lower then that of diesel.

Can u add miracle oil or anything else to add the lubricity of the fuel, I am more interested in learning about it now, I don't want to tear up something.
