       //Lemonescent// Smells of lemons, too.

       Would the exhaust fumes glow too? Glowing particulates, in busy cities would turn those drab grey cityscapes into purple glowing wonderlands. Street-lighting prices would plummet, and we'd enter a new age of global peace and prosperity. Nightime would become a thing of the past, and by the end of the century, the entire planet would be bathed in a friendly, healthy purple glow.

       An easily visible additive to diesel would be a good thing for motorcyclists. Although quite how you could avoid it when you're already hard over in a corner.

       Diesel already has an appearance additive to distinguish it from home heating fuel, which is the same substance, but under different tax schedules. (At least here in the US.)

       You could use radioluminescents like radium-226 or strontium-90.

       'Healthy' purple glow, remember?

       See [link], unless of course you are talking about purple.

       Since when was being exposed to large doses of radium-226 (or radon-222) beneficial?
