in doing some more reading, ive found some refferences to old tractors that started on gasoline, then used the engine heat to 'thin' diesel and burn it.
but at this point you need to redesign the fuel system and pretty sure you need a computer controling it.


edit: some quick rearch show diesel fuel at 190F has a viscosity of 1.1
gasoline is .88 (i asume at 60f or 20C)
water is 1.0 (at 20F)

so if you can preheat the fuel to 190F (my car runs at 195 and has coolant lines to the carb), then this is not so far fetched.
