What is the difference between Jet A stove oil and the diesel fuel they sell at the pumps in Alaska or any where else? Does any one run it in their Duramax?

stove oil is a diesel. i believe it just not filtered and a little less refined... i woudnt chance it. i work on stoves for a living and you see some nasty stuff coming through stove oil.

Some run Jet A, but they claim it does not have the lube qualities as diesel, so they mix with diesel or add 2 cycle to help. It is clean fuel.

I would not use stove fuel.

Just run some sort of additve w/ it. Before the whole ULSD they used to blend the fuels. That is why they claim high prices for diesel...bcoz of all the flying.
