JP8 ?

JP8 is what we use in the military to fuel our diesel trucks, HMMV's and 7Ton's ect ect. I was wondering if it would work in my truck. I would assume that it wouldnt work in a factory engine. What about one without a EGR DPF or a Cat. Just wanted to know what you all thought. As disclaimer i dont intend on putting JP8 in my truck, i was letting my mind wander.

The newer engines are a bit sensitive to the fuel, but a 7.3 or IDI would probably do alright with it.
