i did for a wile, well let me explane filtered oil with 30% diesel. since the fuel stayes in the heads so long it stayed warm. had no problem with start up till it got to about 50 out side. pluged in the truck and then it started much butter. pump your oil through a hyd oil filter and keep an eye on your fuel filter. you should not have any problems with the o-rings.
if you want to run on 100% oil then you will need a fuel preheat. most people run on both diesel and oil. diesel to start to get the engine warm and oil once it warm. with this system you will need some kind of a flush system.
to much bull for me. thats why i just mix in 30% diesel and there is no problems
I stoped running it because oil is getting hard to find because of all the bio fuel in my area. if i had a good sorse for oil i would still be using it.
my truck ran the same, exhaust temps were lower and it had a better smell.

You can run it in a blend with your regular diesel fuel with no modifications. I normally run a bio blend, but when i get pure oil i throw it in too. In this cold of weather I'd go up to V5 otherwise you could have one hell of a problem in the morning.

Just for clarification... Biodiesel and Veggie Oil are NOT the same thing.
