Putting diesel in my 1995 chevy 350.

Running good so far, I got low enough compression to which it doesn't even matter. Even though diesel engines themselves have high compression, it's different on my gasser. lol

You guys ever run diesel in any of you gas riggs for ****s and giggles?

If anything it wouldn't run due to not enough spark, firing power. How would it blow?

I put some in an old chevy celebrity. While the engine was still warm it would run, although very crappy. Once the engine cooled down it wouldn't fire.

Got some diesel in an outboard motor one time. It tried to run a bit but smoked like you wouldn't believe.

My 80yr. old great uncle filled his honda fourtrax 300 full of red diesel then told me that his "big red" wasn't running. It didn't even think about firing. So after draining the full tank of diesel, refilling it with gas and using a can and a half of either she finally runs again.
