Actually, kerosene is more refined than diesel, so you'd actually have
less emissions. The only legalities would be that kerosene doesn't have
all the federal 'wheel taxes' that automotive gas and diesel has, but
that would be the only thing. But i'm not sure why you'd want to.
Kerosene is even more expensive than diesel, at least around here.
According to my dad, you used to be able to buy two grades of automotive
diesel, the lower is the grade that's common now, the better grade
which  was basicly was just kerosene.  Diesels are really nifty engines
that can run on just about anything combustable so long as the a/f
mixture is proper.
