kerosene as fuel ????
« on: November 18, 2011, 02:49:03 PM »
hi any body using kerosene as fuel in listers can it be used straight or mixed with diesel or even mixed with other fuels  other fuels ?

i was considering wvo but i think  supply might be a bit small as i think i moght have to have a waste oil collection lisence to be allowed to collect it in any worthwill quantities :(
diesel here is about 0.96c pl and kero is about  0.75c  pl  about 20cent pl  differance and i s about the cheapest oil i can buy here

Kero has low lubricity, so you'll need to add some bio-d or WVO to keep the wear down.
