The government wants you to believe diesels must run on ULS D2 because you will destroy the world if you do anything else.

Just like that crap ethanol Missouri requires on all unleaded fuel except 91 octane or higher. Causing failed carburetors on small engines and motorcycles.

Handle every stressful situation like a dog.
If you can't eat it or play with it, just pee on it and walk away.
