Not only is it cool...but it's jet fuel...comon...who wouldn't want to put jet fuel in their personal vehicle. The post I'm at has an endess supply it seems... hahaha
I suppose 6.4L owners and the manufacturer would know much more than me....But I would be hesitant to put anything in these new engines with their particulate/emissions systems that WASN'T ULSD (15ppm max)......
What would happen with the warranty if the engine or the emissions system went teats-up, and they found jet fuel in your tank and lines? Is it worth it to take the risk?
Now my 7.3L on the other hand.......Hmmmmmm........
But yes. Free is good.

I have the DPF deleted on my truck. Would I be able to use JP-8 in my truck? The EGR is still on the engine but I don't know if it would do anything since the DPF is deleted cause I want to use JP8 but I don't want to mess up my engine or injectors or fuel pump or any of that stuff. I've read a few reviews and some people say its safe and others say it will mess your engine up over time. Can some give me a clear concise answer please lol??
The ARMY uses JP-8 in their diesel engines. when you convert from diesel fuel to JP-8, it will clean out the tank, lines, etc., so keep extra fuel filters handy for a little while. The fuel should be ok to use since you're deleted. BTW - I believe Jet fuel is JP-4.

The free fuel is most likely what is pulled out of each tank for a sample and put into a waste tank. Not sure if it is a daily sampling or weekly. After the waste tank is full a waste hauler is called to empty the tank.

You guys should think twice before putting anything in the tank other than ULSD.
I'm not saying it won't work, but fuel system repairs on 2008 and newer diesels are pricey (10,000$ +)
The biggest problem I see is the lube... HPFP's fail from a lack of lube.
YES! And JP-8 has far less lubricity compared to regular DF-2
I would not put it in ANY common rail engine without a bunch of oil added......and oil will add it's own problems.
It might be "better" to just run regular diesel.
