Multi-Fuel Capabilities? Yes, Sorta.
Diesel Fuel: The most accessible and recommended fuel to use in any modern diesel engine. The current choice of compression ignition engines across the country and the world. It is readily available at most gas stations around the country so finding fuel for you bike will be easy.
Bio-Diesel: This is a form of fuel that can be derived completely from vegetable oils with minimal further processing. It gained a lot of popularity in the 2000s. Most of the currently found bio-diesels are in a blend with traditional diesel fuel. B20 (20% bio-diesel, 90% diesel) is the most common though it can be found as high as B99 (99%bio-diesel, 1% diesel). Warning: bio-diesel has been known to deteriorate rubber seals it contacts. Axiom Diesel Cycles are not set up to run this fuel at this time.
Vegetable Oils: The original “Diesel Fuel.” Rudolf Diesel, creator of the diesel engine, ran his first engines on peanut oil in the 1890s. Though this fuel is not recommended in the current configuration the engine can be modified to run on vegetable. This means there are far more ways to get fuel in an apocalypse than just the local gas station and abandoned vehicles. Warning: Axiom Diesel Cycles are not set up to run this fuel at this time.
Other Fuels: History has shown that diesel engines have been able to run on a variety of substances due to the high compression of the engine and heat generated. Though they have not all shown to run well and some have drastically reduced efficiency. These include but are not limited to kerosene, jet fuel, and turpentine. Warning: Axiom Diesel Cycles are not set up to run any of these fuels at this time.
