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

Anyone want to guess what the BTUs per gallon of Techron additive would be? I put two cans of it in my tank (40floz total) at the start of my last gas tank because of intermittent jerkiness at certain speeds and very intermittent (months between it lighting up) P0420 even though I have a (correct for this vehicle) new LAF sensor with less than 10k miles.

My most recent tank (even directly adding the Techron to the tank measuement as though it were exactly the same as 87 ethanol free gas) was my 2nd best ever. I filled with 90 Octane Ethanol Free this time around, we'll see what I get but I'm off to a good start with 90 on the FCD over the first 50 miles.
