Hello all! In my latest entry, filed under "stupid things" I bought 5 gallons of kerosene instead of diesel.
That being said, the kerosene (and a bale of hay) DID get my brush pile gone. I wanted to split the 5 gallons between the hay bale and the tractor- top off the tank to ensure I had enough to tend the fire and whatnot.
Anyway, I didn't put the kero in the tractor tank- at the time, the tank was a bit above half full, and now it's just above 1/4 tank. After doing some reading I think it would be ok to add a little bit at a time (5:1 maybe?) and double up on the Howe's additive to put back the lubricity into the fuel the kerosene doesn't have.
I really don't have any other use for kerosene- I use propane for my garage heat. Will it clean chainsaw chains? Paintbrushes?
Anybody with experience feel free to chime in. I don't want to keep it around, but I don't want to waste it either.
