ethanol for gasoline subie engines...since we don't get any form of diesel subaru stateside

or import an entire wrecked diesel subie and convert it all over and start running biodiesel.

check your local laws to see if you'll run into emissions issues.

harder swapping diesel into a gas than gas into a diesel. we swapped a diesel 1982 VW rabbit with a gas engine years ago. the emissions guys was like WTF?! this thing runs great for it's age!

wasn't until later i noticed he entered the VIN and had it as a diesel still, clean diesel FTW!
