Ask Andrew Duane about this in his old Rabbit.  Motor oil is like 
super-duper nitro racing fuel to a diesel, and they just chew 
themselves to pieces.  He -was- on the highway, but if I recall, 
overpowered the engine with brakes to the point that it slowed down 
enough and stalled.

BTW, what's a 'camel'?  Never heard of that make.
