Here in Canada they put spiggots into maple trees and let the sap run into
pails. They collect rhe sap and when it is all gathered it is boiled over a
fire in a big tub and stirred. The result is our world famous Maple Syrop.
Great on pancakes, etc. I guess you could put maple sap in the crankcase of
a diesel angine and when it is time for an oil change, drain out the syrop
and use it on your pancakes! ;)
But seriously, I don't think sugar like syrops are suitable as engine fuels.
have you ever seen what happens when sugar dissolved in gasoline gets into
