Added page[edit]

I am not an engineer and would greatly appreciate revisions and expansion by engineers. Thanks. Larry Dunn (talk) 17:47, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Merge?[edit]

This seems very similar to flexible-fuel vehicle Perhaps the two could be merged?  Frank  |  talk  17:54, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

Bifuel/flexfuel, etc, are terms usually just used for vehicles -- multi-fuel can be used for anything that burns any type of fuel. Merging might go the other way -- the various types being merged into multi-fuel. I suspect the article might get unwieldy as a result. Larry Dunn (talk) 18:12, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
I agree with Larry Dunn, this is a more general article, and flexible-fuel vehicle is just a specific application in the automobile industry, they must be kept separate. Mariordo (talk) 18:21, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
OK, good perspective. I didn't put an official merge template on it because I wanted to get some initial feedback. I'll shut up now :-)  Frank  |  talk  19:05, 6 June 2008 (UTC)

M35 truck[edit]

This says "aviation fuel", but AVgas is not Jet fuel, and the truck's article is not helpful, since AVgas is similar to gasoline, while Jet fuel is similar to diesel. Which is meant by the sentence, or is both meant? (Indeed you can run a piston airplane on gasoline, and you can run an old pre-computer car on AVgas ; similarly you can run an old pre-computer diesel truck on jet fuel, and you can run some auxillary jets on diesel ) -- 65.94.43.89 (talk) 05:38, 1 June 2015 (UTC)
