Please take Larry's advice & only attempt this an act of desperation. For no particular reason & against my Dad's advice , I decided to do this with kerosene on one of the VW diesels I had and it actually CLOGGED the oil channels with the sludge that the K1 loosened. If memory serves (I was a teen at the time), we had to run several gallons of K1 thru the engine before it stopped knocking. NOT WORTH THE RISK.

Hope this helps
