It can be done, but the tractor has to be built for it, and I don't really recommend trying it for all the hassle involved. I had a JD model "B" that was set up for it, so here's the routine: First, you start the tractor on the small gasoline tank and get the engine good and hot. Then, you move the …fuel selector over to the main, or "Fuel" tank. You'll probably also need to slightly richen the mixture. The only time we'd do this was during tractor pulls and parades when the old-timers wanted to smell the kerosene burning. Other than that, the tractor runs better and cleaner on gasoline. Have fun!

How much a foot for carpet Mark Twain said that "One foot on fire & one foot on ice & on AVERAGE your pretty comfortable" I share his view that average is a pretty illusionary tool when it comes to being really useful.
