I don't know much about it, but from what Wikipedia told me, it sounds very similar to gasoline -- and therefore, probably doesn't lubricate very well and detonates at a much lower compression ratio than diesel or diesel-like fuels.

I personally wouldn't use it, especially straight. You could use it to cut a heavier fuel like WMO, or something, and probably get good results.

I Looked at the Wikipedia too. I'm running two gallons in my tank now with diesel. No problems. It's oilier than gasoline. appears much like diesel when poured, has a bluish tint to it.

You should put that info in the Wikipedia article!
