I was at a garage sale today and bought a 5gal can of diesel, 2 jugs of PS additive, and about 40gal of new/used oil and such for $2. Question is what's in the can? Diesel, diesel+_____? To safeguard I decided to add to the diesel for the proper whathaveyou's that our engines need. Question is what do I use? Wrong answers only (mostly). Use the poll to your liking, and answer below as yours are generally better;).

I kinda trust drain oil more than I trust random cans of pump fuel

never know if grandpa was trying to get back at fuel thieves by leaving out a can of fuel spiked with that 'engine sieze' that you used to be able to buy

I added a quart of oil and some atf. Didn't notice any difference. Made a 3hr trip with it and all was well.
