Default Davis Diesel Power Fuel - Plane Fuel Blend

I have an old can of Davis Diesel Power Fuel. There are 3 blends indicated on the can: 1/2a, ABC Pre-Mix, and Plane Fuel; it is the "Plane Fuel" blend.
Can anyone tell me what this blend is for? What type of diesel engines can use it?

Plane fuel is intended for use in bushing bearing iron and steel model Diesel engines. Sorry, I donít know actual oil percentage or composition.

Peter,
The 1/2A mix has more ether than the normal mix would have (over 30% ether). The ABC Pre-Mix is for those engines converted from glow to diesel. Those converted using the Davis Diesel Heads, or "IF" you have a Irvine "20" or Irvine "40". The last "Plane Fuel" blend is a mix that has about 25% or more caster oil for those engines that don't have ball bearings.
So, I have some small diesel engines (Mills, Elfin, PAW 55, MP Jet .04 and .06 (Mills looking "Replicas"). And I have a can of Davis Diesel Power fuel. On the can the red dot is on the 1/2A and Plane fuel. Which means I have a high ether and caster oil content in that can.
