You will probably have to mix your own Im in the same position. Best bet is to call Davis.

Default Davis Diesel Power Fuel - Plane Fuel Mix

I have an old can of Davis Diesel Power Fuel. There are 3 types of blends indicated: 1/2a, ABC blend, and Plane Fuel. It is the "Plane Fuel" blend. On most threads, I have only come across mention of the first two, 1/2a and ABC. Does anyone know what this blend is and in what type of diesel engines it can be used?
Thanks,

Peter

No idea, but I vaguely remember a discussion on here years ago about the different blends. The forum search function might help. Otherwise ring Davis.

Turning a Graupner 12x7 @ 9,450 rpm.
The Plane Fuel is for bushed engines and has more lube in it. I ran my OS LA conversions on it.

Man oh man, Dave. The Davis fuel has castor oil in it. Better stop using it as soon as possible, Id hate for your engines to find out theres castor in their fuel.

Sorry, had to make a funny.

Bob Davis passed away in July 2019.

Does anyone know whether his business will be continued?
