    Default What can a Multi-fuel run?

    Here is the list I have so far:

    Motor oil
    ATF
    Hydraulic Fluid
    Gasoline
    Diesel
    Kerosene
    Refrigeration Oil
    Vegetable oil

    What else can be run? Shortening? Gear oil? I want to buy a deuce, but I want a list of EVERYTHING it will run.

    Thanks, Bradley

    If it's a liquid and it burns, add it to the list

    Just remember, just because it will burn it, doesn't mean it should, or will for very long.

    anything flammable as long as it's not pure 100LL. you could run 100LL as long as you mix it with a heavier oil.

    I wonder if it would be easier to have a list of what it should not burn.

    Might be shorter.

    Straight Gas
    Aviation fuel (says so right on the data plate)
    Lacquer Thinner ( I heard this from Wreckerman)

    What else?

    Like the guy said, just because it can, doesn't mean you should. While you can buy replacement engines, they still ain't cheap!

    This is just from reading posts through the forum too!

    Laquer thinner is not a good idea (ask me how I know).

    Anything that has an astringent quality (solvent effect) will clean out the fuel tank and system causing fuel filter clogging until the system is cleaned out.

    Any dry fuel (gasoline, kerosene, JP-8, etc.) will need oil added to it to to lube the injector pump.

    Vegetable shortning might work in very hot weather if cut with gasoline but would thicken up and clog the lines in cool weather. I'm not sure about animal fats.....might burn but could cause problems.

    Some things should be burned as an emergency fuel only.

    Aviation fuel (says so right on the data plate)
    Aviation fuel (at least in the past) was 110 octane......the data plate meant it should not be ran as a primary fuel.

    I got stranded at a military airport in Germany many years ago in a deuce...they had no diesel....just aviation gas.

    An old crew chief put 30 gallons of av gas in the tank and then topped it off with 30 weight motor oil.....the old deuce screamed all the way back to Frankfurt but seemed to suffer no ill effects.

    Just thin it down with gasoline.
