I have run 50/50 gas diesel. better fuel mileage, hard to start at about 50F, has a run on dendency above 70F.
I lived one summer in a gravel pit at 9500 ft elevation - town was just about a whole tank for a round trip which did not leave any for hunting - but there was a diesel nurse tank at the pit so I started with a gallon and gradually got to filling the tank when coming back from town and filling with gas in town.
Below 30F it generally took a whip of either to get it to stumble to life and 4-5 min to start pulling.
It was a 65 Wagoneer with a 230 6 and there was no extra maint other than to clean the plugs, it had points and the plugs usually ran over 15k, about the same as the points, but before pulling the camper over Wolf Creek Pass when it was 2 lane I pulled one to check and then cleaned them about 10k on them.
