Dead cats in new diesel fuel?

Christian Koch, an inventor and patent holder of the "KDV 500" that he said produces high quality fuel, said he can transform waste products such as paper, rubbish and plastic materials into fuel but denied stories published in Bild newspaper on Tuesday and Wednesday that suggested he used dead cats as part of the mix for his organic diesel fuel.

Diesel fuel, in constrast to gasoline, tends to have long chain paraffins. The quality of diesel fuel is measured on a cetane scale (how it compares to n-C16H34). Diesel fuel is produced from a higher boiling point cut than is gasoline.
