Called Power Kerosene in Australia. You can make it by mixing Lighting Kerosene and Mineral Turpentine in equal proportions. I usually run the Farmall M on petrol, but have run the Farmall H for heavy work (ploughing and harrowing) on kero. You do need the correct manifold and the heat shields and radiator shutters working. Farmall tractors here were nearly all setup for kero operation, so most of them have the shutters and heat shields. Finding a good manifold is nearly impossible. I have one for a Farmall M which is being used as a model to make replacements at a local foundry… sadly they know how to charge!

Is it any cheaper to run kero? Around here kero is more expensive than diesel which is more expensive than gas. I know others here in the states can get kero for less than diesel. I have heard they burnt more gas when run on kero. Add that to the fact that you have to drain all that oil out because of crankcase dilution. :shock:
