I asked the list about that last year, I think.

The consensus was that it wouldn't work - because the gas is too dry - or something similar.

I don't really understand that, but I've never ran a diesel or lpg, either.

What I've been wondering lately is why in America, where diesel fuel is often more expensive than regular fuel, people don't run regular fuel in their diesels instead.

There must be a good reason.
