Default Diesel runs on gas

I wondered when the industry was going to go this way. With all of the direct injection gas cars, it kind of makes sense.

And also this:

New age multi fuel engines ! New technology should be able to solve some old problems.

The military multi fuel engines like those in the popular M35A2 could run on diesel, kerosene, gasoline, heating oil or jet fuel. However, normally the fuel is what lubricated the injector pump so gasoline was not recommended except in emergencies. If gasoline was to be used they recommended a quart of fresh/clean motor oil per 15 gallons of gasoline to lubricate the pump.

80 series with about 180k miles add about a quart of oil per 40 gallons too.
