Veg oil and Gasoline Mix?!?!?!

Came across a post in a biodiesel forum talking about what this guy is doing. What do you all think of this...is this the "secret" to "Diesel Secret?"

Yes, the RUG thins out the oil and also produces a chemical change to the oil so that it does not 'string' when pushed through the injectors. This will help avoid coking of the injectors and rings. It's also a good idea to add a cetane booster to the mix to help smooth out the combustion process.


Gas has been a winter additive to diesel for decades. It helps to thin it out and prevent clouding in the cold.

I normally run about 20% #2, 75% WVO, and 5% Reg Unleaded. My truck still doesn't have the power it has with straight #2, but a lot more than it did with straight WVO. I do know that an old volkswagon diesel a friend of mine has recommends up to 20% gas mixed with the diesel in the winter, so obviously you can go up pretty high with it. I am considering switching from gas to just putting propane injection on my truck, but I'm not sure about it.

Do you have any proof that gas "produces a chemical change in the oil (sic Veg Oil)". I do not believe that is possible.

When I make my blend I add 5% gasoline.

The old Mercedes literature advised adding some gasoline to the diesel fuel in the winter time.

Why would it have to produce a chemical change, its not supposed to produce a change, just thin it down, gasoline is very thin, as opposed to veggie, which is extremely thick. It makes flow and filter better.
