    I live near a peanut area and read that some farmers use a seed press to make their own oil then cut it with ten to twenty percent gasoline and kerosene. I used this one tank full in my Detroit 6.5 and my 93 2.5L 300D Mercedes. has anyone tried this in a TDI or other common rail motor?

    Not in a CRD engine but lots of people do what you describe in older mechanical injection pump engines without any problems.

    I wouldn't put any of this in any TDI... the older Diesels can run on anything... best models for this type of abuse would be old Mercedes... (1980 or older vintage...)
