On the last statement, absolutely affirmative. That's why 240 volt motors, stoves, etc. don't have a neutral per se, just a ground (bonding) wire. But I still have to disagree on the first part,...

old diesel

As some have said, give it to a farmer or trucker or someone who has an older diesel with the mechanical style pump. Those are very forgiving. Fuel is too expensive to just "dump" it or waste it. ...
