Been doing 1 oz per gallon for 2 years now, no problems. I can tell when I don't do it, mileage goes down.

I run 1 oz per gal in my diesel tank. I notice the truck is much quieter when cold. When its up to temp I flip to VO and its really happy

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

can you run it, yes BUT can you run it like that for long, NO! if you want to successfully run VO you will need to either convert the VO to Bio or put a 2 tank heated system on the truck.

MPG on VO is the same as diesel.

VO would be more expensive than diesel.

I am wondering if we can mix VO in with diesel for lubrication.

yes you can mix a little VO with the diesel. I dont know what ratio but a little will be ok (less then 5%)

If you buy new VO, yes its more expensive. I was getting used oil (wvo) for free from a restaurant but stopped because of their quality issues. Now I buy it in bulk from a fryer company and pay about a buck a gal and have little to no snot to deal with.
