    NO....it's ok to thin diesel with it durring the winter, But never run straight K1. Not 100%, but Ithink it dosen't have the lube quailties of diesel fuel.

    you can mix it with diesel, but running straight K1 it burns to hot for the motors witch can destroy them and like bowtie said not enough lube in the fuel
