Diesel fuel and motor oil deck treatment???
The good ole boys down home in Tennessee swear by a mix of 50% diesel fuel and 50% used (or new) motor oil or transmission fluid, depending on the desired tint, sprayed liberally on the deck. I tried it on one of our douglas fir decks last year and other than pissing my wife off till she got over it and having the deck smell like a truck stop for a week or so, it seemed to work great. I didn't walk on the deck for a few days till the brew soaked in. They tell me it needs to re-applied every few years when the color fades.
Has anyone else ever heard of or tried this method??
