Default JetCentral Super Eagle on Diesel

I am thinking about buying a jet with a JetCentral Super Eagle turbine in it. I would like to run it on diesel but can't find any info to know if it is ok. If so, does any settings need to be changed?

Hello dfrazier
We dont recommend to run the Eagle with Diesel because the combustion chamber was not designed for it
It will run with no adjustments but the combustion chamber will last about 18 hrs

Is this because of higher temperatures or what other reason?

Temperature is the main reason, but also some of the chemicals in the diesel are more aggressive to the combustion chambers, this will depend of the quality of the diesel

Thanks Juan. I know there is a lot less Sulfur in the diesel than in kerosene.
