Cool Straight diesel?

We get 50/50 in our fuel tank for our furnace.I believe it is half kerosene and half diesel. My husband has a tank of diesel fuel in a tank he needs to get rid of. He wanted to put it in our fuel tank but didn't know how that would work if it already has 50/50 in it.Does anyone know if this would hurt anything? Thanks!

Diesel

Why are you buning a diesel/kerosene blend? Unless you live in a very cold climate you should not need to blend kerosene with the diesel. It does no harm to do so, in fact it helps the furnace burn cleaner. The extra diesel won't hurt anything. You say you are burning diesel for your heating oil. Is it really diesel or heating oil? There is a difference.

Sorry, i was wrong. I guess it was fuel oil and kerosene for keeping it thin. Would it hurt to put the diesel in with this mixture? Thanks!

No, it won't hurt to add the diesel. If it was purchased recently, it probably has anti-gelling agents already in it.
