It sounds like there's only one way to find out and only one person here with the stuff needed to do so.... you. LOL

Seriously though, I wouldn't put that stuff in the 6.4. There's no point in possibly destroying an engine when there's really no need to.

Sounds like a big risk that could cost 10-15k real quick just because you got some free jp8.

It would probably work, but Uncle Sam doesn't really like it when you jack his fuel...

Its really not recommended for high pressure common rail motors, it doesnt have the lubricant in it the pump or injectors will need, it also has a low cetane #, lower compression temp so cold starts will be a PITA, also due to the almost complete lack of sulfur in it your valve seats will be caked with soot over time, it will also prematurely wear out valve seats and seals. Mixing it with pump diesel wont add enough sulfur content back for lubrication and wont add enough cetane points.

All in all its just asking for trouble, in older diesels you can run it mixed with 2 stroke oil but just not in a common rail that has a $10,000.00 injection system. Its not a jet engine or a multi fuel engine so why risk several thousands to save a few dollars.

I always laugh when people say they put jet fuel in their cars and "Boy, the car was really pulling hard... like a rocket."

Most of the guys that tell me those stories are older. I guess they don't know what jet fuel is and how it's formulated to burn in entirely different conditions.

Also, it's not nitrometh... you're not going to makes hundreds of horsepower more in a gas naturally-aspirated motor with the simple addition of "jet" fuel.

Yep, still holding the stance that this could end up being a $12-18,000 repair bill.

Nope, served in the Navy. Also have a Coast Guard buddy that ran it in his 6.0 . Trust me you don't want to run this stuff in a common rail motor.
