Default Cheetah and Diesel

Hi guys, I am currently running my Rabbit, happily I must say, on diesel. Planning on buying a Cheetah for Xmas to put into my DV8R as my second jet but I see in the ads by Jet Central, that there is no mention of the Cheetah running on diesel. Is that true that only Jet A and Kerosene are the only fuels it is allowed to run on? Thanks. Chic

Sorry guys, a bit more digging and I would have found the answer. Just found the Cheetah manual online and section 7 said the engine would be happy also, to run on diesel ---- just for me. Dustin started me on diesel and I'm sticking with it. Smile. Chic

Absolutely. . .I have been running diesel / Amsoil Dominator combo in Rabbit and Cheetah for almost three years. No issue at all and NO parameter changes required. Any questions, do not hesitate to give me a call. . .

BTW, Cheetah SP now rated and producing 34 lb thrust !

Regards,
Eric

​Thank you sir. Will follow your lead. Could you tell me the percent of oil "YOU" run? Chic

Using Amsoil Dominator, you are good at 2% but no more than 2.5%. All other approved turbine oils use at the 2.5% rate EXCEPT. . .Mobil DTE Lite which requires 5%.

Enjoy. . .
