I was the 5 ton wrecker operator(mechanic) when I was in em the service.
The reason you could run gas with the diesel was because it was a ‘Multi fuel”.
They would run on av gas, diesel, kerosene, gas.
Not your typical diesel.
They don’t run well on solvent, though.
Took me forever to figure out the problem till I bled the injectors and smelled the fuel.
The wrecker and 2.5 trucks, you could take off in low range and pull up in the transfer case and get 10 wheel spin. Lol
