I repaired diesels in heavy equipment
for a number of years, and several of my customers were convinced of the benefits of adding gasoline to their fuel
, in winter.
I don't advise you do it on purpose, but at 6%, in an engine
of that vintage, you'll be fine.
As advised in another post, fill up more freqently for a while, so as to reduce the percentage of gasoline in the fuel
An operator of heavy equipment
told me that in winter in Canada
, it was mandatory to add some gazoline into the diesel tank. It made starting much easyier after a very cold night and affected not al all the duty performance of the equipment. So, don't worry about this gazoline it might make you happy!.
