You can definitely run kerosene in your diesels. It comes in Low Sulfur and Ultra Low Sulfur varieties. I know that in marine applications, people use it a lot. It is supposed to clean up your injectors, pumps, etc. If you are worried about lubricity, you can never have enough, just add some more lubricant additive.
If people are running strait transmission fluid, waste motor oil, etc, Kerosene sounds pretty tame, in my opinion. I really wouldn't be afraid of running it strait, but if you worried about lubricity, add some additive.
