Power stroke and putting anything into the diesel other than some fuel additive is a really bad idea. Plenty of power strokes were ruined by people trying to run waste vegetable oil in the early 2000s.
If you want to burn something in a diesel that isn't diesel, the power stroke is just about the worst platform I am aware of that one could pick.
Don't put gas in the diesel, don't put a bunch of motor oil or used transmission fluid in the fuel unless you want to replace the injectors. Look up how much a set costs and how difficult they are to change.
