    I had always heard that there is something not good about using regular oil (oil not formulated for diesels) in diesels, but never the other way around. I had heard that it has something to do with the interaction with combustion and the residues left in the oils. I had heard this from a long time diesel mechanic of course that does not make it true. Just my $.02

    OK, now I remember it has to do with the high sulfur content of diesel fuel interacting with the oil. Sure made sense to me.
