Re: Using JP-5 in Diesel Engine
Really, you should be calling JD and asking to speak to one of their tech reps about this. Realistically, burning JP-5 in place of DF-2 should need no additives. However, that does not mean all of the seals will be compatible. For instance, when we swapped to JP-5 on certain military vehicles, the motorpool needed to change out all seals in the HMMWVs, but didn't have to do a thing on our MRAP. So call JD and see what they say.
