No. 1 diesel Vs No. 2 diesel

What is the price for no.2 and no. 1 diesel(kerosene). If no. 1 is much cheaper, could I mix No. 1 and No.2 , say 50/50 ( or some mix %)in one tank and sw to that tank after I get engine running and warmed up. with No. 2 diesel. NO.2 is about $3.90 per gallon in Lower Alabama. Any Ideas on how to cut fuel cost?

You could go to the alternative fuels section and look into burning waste oils. If you do the filtration correctly, they work great. My fuel costs are less than a dollar a gallon now.

That's why my hunt for waste oil starts... NOW. Any suggestions for an amateur? Especially on the collection side of it. I'm aware of the methods and their respective threads, just weary of a consistent supply (SLC, UT).

Typically, #1 is more expensive than #2. In the northern states where it gets cold in winter most stations sell a 50-50 mix of #1 & #2 anyhow. #1 has less heat energy per gallon than #2 so MPG & HP will suffer with the blend or straight #1.

Yea, I don't think you can find #1 at most stations in lower Alabama. They may have a kerosene hand pump somewhere. #1 is easier available up North, gives less mpg, I was wondering how much it cost. You could get it from a fuel distributor I guess, go to their tanks. Yep, cooking oil, used... I don't know, NOT Everyone is gonna be able to get a cheap source of the stuff. Guess it time to look into that again. Some one sell a kit to use the back, or one tank of the f350 as the cooking oil tank with the heater deal. get it started on reg diesel, then sw to cooking oil.

around here kerosene is cheaper because no road tax is applied.
