Hi Rob,
Number 1 diesel is Kerosene and is routinely used as diesel fuel in the winter in colder climates.
I understand that in some truck stops in the US and Canada they have pumps for both Number 1 and Number 2 diesel so that you can buy the fuel that suits your requirements depending on whether you are travelling north or south.
