Hello. Given John'* response, I think he must have ridden in one. The only black marks I leave come from my tailpipe. It'* a nice car though, I hope to spend some money on it down the road.

It'* all cetane man! Don't really have a choice per se, whatever is at the pump. You can buy aftermarket additives that will supposedly raise cetane value, don't know that they actually will. I have used some in my truck, not really any noticeable results. Maybe similar in a gasser when you add octane boost? Increasing cetane won't affect anything necesarily though, just like increasing octane. Cetane can be whatever, really, it'* the fundamental differences between a gas engine and a diesel engine that affect how you change power from a fuel standpoint.
Have Fun
