Never heard of it, always wanted a big old Wisconsin engine and put it in my Sears Suburban, had a mechanic tell me it would tear that tractor up. The tail that waged the dog.

You take it that what you are seeing is legit, do we know its diesel in the tank? no...

Its also not uncommon for a spark ignition engine to run on diesel that has been cut with gasoline...

Any engine not running off the heat of compression with fuel being injected in, is not a diesel engine.

a farmer once told me he ran his old farm truck on half gas and half diesel, he said "it runs good but smokes a lot". I asked him why he did that and he said his brother in law works for the county. He must have been getting the diesel cheap or free.
