Thank you for your concerns about the formed chemicals. Hydrazines are reputedly unstable, but they are used with far less C atoms than this. Nitrates are also used in explosives (diesel fertilizer bomb) but the formed nitrate molecule has far less N atoms in it. If anyone would know the formation enthalpies for these big molecules it would be greatly appreciated. As for tinkering your only concern is the condensing fuel. By the way treating the cylinder with steam would also work for diesels, they condense even more fuel due to the fact diesel has a high boiling point. (And you would have guessed that by looking at the soot that comes out)
