Could I use diesel to kill bacteria that are under my nails.?

In brief: Bad idea

Diesel will certainly kill the bacteria under your nails but that is not a good idea.
It can cause other skin issues that you don't want. I recommend you use a good anti-bacterial liquid hand soap or an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
