I didnlt think fuel oil had the lubricating properties needed without mixing?  A good friend of mine runs used motor and transmission fluid filered and mixed 80:20 with gas/corn.   He got a bunch of fuel oil free and ran it but mixed with something due to reading it did not have the needed lubricants.

Pretty sure it is the same thing.  They used to be all the same, but off road diesel and maybe fuel oil had red dye in them to alert the po po that you were using off road fuel without paying tax.  If they stopped and checked you...which has a chance of about 0% if you're not a OTR trucker.

Diesel fuel and fuel oil are very similar.  Fuel oil and off road diesel are dyed.  They probably have a higher sulfur content now as well which is a bit like when lead was removed from gasoline.  The process of removing sulfur for the new ULSD fuel actually reduces the lubricating quality of the fuel.  That has to be added back in later and adds to the cost.  Yeah EPA:(

I am so done with E10.

I have been using straight gas in my powersports toys and small engines for a while; except for my riding mower.  Well the other day I topped of the, near empty, riding mower with straight 91 octane real gas.

The riding mower holds like 1.9 gallons and typically uses almost all of that mowing my 3/4 acre lawn.  Well, running pure gas, I USED LESS THAN HALF A TANK MOWING THE ENTIRE LAWN.  Freakin' unbelieveable.

Straight gas more than pays for itself in small engines.

I don't know, probably $0.30-.040 more per gallon than that E10 crap.  Well worth the price.
