Default Aero Shell for lube in Diesel fuel?

Is this a good lube to use in a Diesel fuel mix. Thirty years ago, it was used. Perhaps a bit of castor oil would help.

Long term the Connecting rod would suffer. Castor oil has extreme film strength and shear strength. This oil actually migrates and sticks to hot spots. Turbine oil actually "unzips" at high temps.
