Question Samual Adams mixed with diesel?

I head from a diesel mechanic one day, that mixing a Samual Adams with diesel will thin it out giving better diesel mileage and other qualities. I asked another diesel mechanic about this and he said that it would destroy the engine. Who do I believe? What are the positives and negatives to this if any.

I did not know and planned on staying clear of it but just thought I would ask just in case.

that would only add water to the fuel and ruin the engine. I would ignore any further advice from him.

You should go buy a case of sam adams, or any other beer, and tell him to demonstrate in his truck, if he does it I wouldnt take any advice from him and if he doesnt do it i still wouldnt. Sounds to me like hes a mechanic, who wants you to put beer in your engine so you screw it up and take it to him to get it fixed. What do all diesels have on them and why? water seperators, because water can damage injectors, pistons, cylinder walls, etc.. adding beer wouldnt make sense because youd just be adding water wich your water sperator is going to take out.

Man don't pour good beer into your fuel tank, you can pour that other garbage passed off as beer into it. Budwiser comes to mind as a acceptable substuite.

Drink the beer and put pure diesel in the truck and enjoy both responsibly.

No one will probably believe me when I say that I have never had an alcolholic drink before. Im underage but the closest that I have come is drinking is: Sams Choice Root Beer.

Fire Rooster is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Heard the new coors commercial?

" Beer is 90% water, We use 100% pure rocky mountain filtered water. Makes you wonder what the others are using?"

That being said I do not think I want to add 90% water anything to my trucks fuel. Since you do not drink, send me the case of Samuel Adams and I will qulity test the beer for you. Keep the dieselmy trucks I run on B100
