32grand, welcome aboard. Diesel is difficult to ignite unless it is heated. I have personally stuck a lit road flare into a pan of diesel. It would not ignite. After trying for a while to get it to ignite we finally added about an ounce of gas. It lit with a match. After it had burned a bit and was put out, diesel was then hot, the diesel would ignite easily with the flare.
