Stove oil for diesel engines?
[Return to Topics]

Stove oil is the best of the 2 categories of furnace oils as it has a lower freezing point. Costs a bit more too but still far less than straight diesel from the pumps.

Was thinking of using stove oil for the diesel in my car with injector lube added to make up for the loss of engine additives.

If not, what do you think for emergency cases.

My car is a VW, and usually German engineering can take anything.

What do you think?

Will it work? Yes.

Should you do it? No. It's called tax avoidance, and it's against the law.

Discussed many times on this board, and YTMAG boards. #1 diesel and #1 fuel oil are same thing, #2 diesel and #2 fuel oil are same thing. Note advice in post below reference color however.
