Do you mean BURNING it?? Doesn't sound like a good idea to me.

about 2 years ago I was changing my fuel filter and my lift pump was burned out so I couldnt fill my filter housing by cycling the key to get the lift pump to pump the fuel in to the filter housing so I filled it up with power steering fluid which is about the same as tranny fluid and after I got it primed it started up and ran fine

Tranny fluid has additives to keep it from burning, it has friction modifiers and Lord knows what else, it will burn in your truck, but its definately not going to help it for the long haul.
If I was stranded somewhere I'd burn what ever was avaliable, motor oil/ kero/2 stroke/tranny fluid/hydralic oil..whatever I could get my hands on, but that would only be if I was in some kind of pickle or it was life or limb or if I was trying to finish off a bad VP just to see how long it would last.
I'm guessing your thinking of burning USED (free) tranny fluid, cuz new would be more expensive than diesel.
