Re: mixing Kerosine with diesel?
K1 is basically the same as #1 diesel, basically thinner so it won't gel as soon. If you are getting gelling then the fuel isn't properly blended.. They will blend in certain amounts of #1 to thin the fuel.
As was said above, K1 does not have road taxes in it. You're OK if you're using it as an "additive" but the guys running it in very high percentages (using it as fuel) are treading on thin ice.
Back in the old days it used to be recommended to cut #2 diesel with gasoline. That probably changed because of people using too much, or not mixing the fuels enough.
