Based on the amount of heavy ends in modern summer gas we already have diesgasohol

Any hydrocarbon mix is allowed in gasoline as long as it meets the octane rating, (biodiesel is not considered a hydrocarbon)
that is why oil companies love ethanol because they can sell you your 84/85 octane kerosene mix with ethanol to boost its rating.

Also many common injector cleaners are just diesel fuel in a can.

An Insight isn’t exactly modern either (I have collector plates on mine) but it is efficient
