I don't know about the Duece and 1/2, but the 5 tons use a fuel pump that adjusts for the viscosity of the fuel. They will run on anything from trans oil to 40 weight is about the limit. I saw a mechanics class try one on 90 weight. It run for a few minutes then died. Keith

When they made a multi-fuel engine they did a really good job, it's not a powerhouse, but it gets the job done and will live in some very extreme conditions.

I want one.....Bad!!

That is about 30 miles away from me! I know that in the next town over, there are some old tank transporters sitting in a fenced in lot.

Isn't that the Continental "Hercules" multi-fuel engine?

I don't know the specific name of the engine Duke but I do believe it is a Continental.
