Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Why not? Kerosene consists of medium-length linear-chain alkanes, and diesel consists of long alkanes (paraffins) and polycyclic hydrocarbons
Petroleum derived diesel is composed of about 75% saturated hydrocarbons (primarily paraffins including n, iso, and cycloparaffins), and 25% aromatic hydrocarbons (including naphthalenes and alkylbenzenes).[2] The average chemical formula for common diesel fuel is C12H26, ranging from approx. C10H22 to C15H32.
