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.
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.

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

" 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
