no gas would really not be a good thing isn't it amazing a gas motor on diesel will just gum up and quit running a big bad high compression diesel on gas will litterly EXPLODE
odd how things work that way I can tell you all if you put 1/2 a tank of desile in your 27 hp Honda mower with 1/2 a tank of gas you will never have misquotes aghain
