If it's a mechanically injected diesel, it'll do it. My caution would be the dot man. In my personal vehicle, I'm not scrutinized but a commercial vehicle might raise and eyebrow and get you some fines. Now if this is just a farm truck or a lot truck for jockeying trailers, roll with it. The problem then becomes burning the cylinders out from time to time to prevent coking.
