I read in a 4 wheeling mag that gasonline could be run in a diesel engine with a
little modding. is this possible? would it be economical? can other fuels like
kerosene be run in a diesel engine? I'm doing an idependant study in school on
diesel engines and biodiesel, i'm fascinated by the effeciency of diesel
compared to gas engines, and biodiesel. what about 2 stroke diesle engines,
could a supercharger to provide air be run electrically to give the engine more
efficiency? lots of questions, but i am very curious about this subject.
