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,...

Well........yes. IF he really wants to use it in his rig, I would add a can of Seafoam (or Stanadyne), and also a can of a good "algae" killer for diesel fuel. I'm an old school diesel mechanic,...
