Default Methanol/Diesel injection?

now i grew up burning ant piles by pouring fuels and a
match on em till i learned that diesel doesn't burn as easy
as gas.what if a diesel/(petroleum distilate or alchohol) mixture
was used?

diesel fuel also has 15% more energy per liter than gas
and if i'm not mistaken they also run cooler. diesels run
boosted and use insane 20:1 comp ratios all the time.
if im sounding stupid i will further explain just tell me
what u think so far!

oh ---- while surfing at night i found this

http://www.sae.org/technical/papers/861165

the mix can burn and think of the ability to run
higher compression,advanced timing, and stupid
boost levels by adjusting the mix.
it runs effecient cuz less air and fuel is needed to
make the same power, but what if the engine
flowed as much air as a honda engine?Mas energia!!!

Diesel has less octane, in otherwords it is more prone to detonation.

You really need to bone up on miller cycle, homey, diesel is a completely alien beast.

diesel is a compression fuel, by itself its not very flamable, once its compressed the heat from the insane compression ignites it. I dont know how it would be more prone to detonation, but I cant immagine it running well at all if you are trying to run it with low compression ratio's and a spark plug. Have you ever seen the pistons out of a diesel tractor or truck, the tops are THICK! and the ringlands are real beefy.

methanol or propane, inject any higher octane fuel into a high comp motor and you get power

How do think diesel engines run in the first place? Forced and controlled detonation. That's why everything's so thick and beefy on diesel engines.

Ever wonder why diesels sound like they have rod knock?
