From all I've read it ain't worth it. Don't do it. No gasoline or alcohol should be run thru a diesel.
Try farting in the tank...bet nobody has done that before!

DON"T DO IT!!!!!!!!!!

Say good bye to your injectors. Thats an old trucker trick and most of the them got lucky because for it to be successful and not hurt anything it has to be mixed together properly so it goes through mixed and not all at once, spend $9.00 on Howes or Power Service and do it right

That trick was used if there wasn't an diesel condiotioner available, the problem is, it doesn't remove moisture from the fuel that the conditioners do. Also, don't jsut run conditioners when it's cold, run some every now and then in the summer too.

I used to run conditioner every other fill in the generators in the summer that I operated for WCW Wrestling, and evert tank in the winter. ( You never want to have a fuel problem when you are doing live TV.)
