I believe you're right on that. I met a survivalist once years ago. All his
cars and trucks were diesel. He used home heating oil in everything. He
claimed to have over 10,000 gallons stored up. Never bought fuel at the pump
unless he was traveling. Every spring when the heating oil prices would go
down, he filled up his tanks.

Mr. Survivalist is at risk of big fines from the DOT.

 Had a couple friends who managed to, often, run out of home
heating oil. Diesel runs fine. Home heat oil also works fine
with kerosene.

I can't speak for everywhere, but up here in Alaska #1 diesel is JetA50
Grade, at the Distributer and I believe that ALL our fuel is Low-Sulfur
with a Lubricant Additive Package added to fuels used in Injector and
Turbine based ICE's.  Since I burn only #1 in my Gensets, so that I only
have to have one grade of fuel here at the cabin, which has a Open Pot
Diesel Burning Cookstove, and is my Primary Heat, and Hot Water source.
The fuel I get has the Lubricant Additive Package added, and the same
tanker barge delivers to the AirStrip in the next town over, from the
same tank, on the same trip.

I have known people who do the same thing, only they started to have to much
injector pump problems. They started adding 1 quart of 30 weight oil to a 25
gallon tank to put the sulpher the older diesel engines required. That was
quite a few years back they were doing this.
