<!-- google_ad_section_start -->Well summer is over, and I would like to know... did anyone successfully overcome vapor lock drivability issues by using kero or diesel for the last 12 months. Were there any penalties, such as, smoke, fouled plugs or what? Year and make of car, if possible. Ron<!-- google_ad_section_end -->

It works for me in my 1986 Suburban 454 ci when towing in excess heat conditions, by lowering the octane, I think. I generally use 10 - 20% diesel without any harmful effects, other than a slight decrease in fuel mileage, which beats the heck out of sitting on the shoulder, or worse yet, blocking lanes of a busy intersection with tow-rig and trailer.
