Too run used tranny fluid or not

My Cousin is a tech and was telling me that i could run used tranny fluid as fuel. the reason is that it burns cleaner, cleans injectors, and is cheaper that diesel. i was just wondering wat everyone else thought about it?

that's a big NOT. the rubber in the fuel system isnt designed for tranny fluid. it will eat the rubber seals. i was going to mix tranny fluid with diesel and got shot down. then marc explained it to me about the diffrent types of rubber used between the two. wont work.

If you can't tell from the above posts the answer is NO, don't do it.

It would be one thing to use NEW tranny fluid (it would eat the rubber etc.. like bill said) but USED tranny fluid will have small metal particles from wear on the internals that you DON'T want scraping the cylinder walls of your engine.

Also I think the lubricity content is down (which is bad for injectors), but don't quote me on that.


Either way, the answer is stick to diesel.

Cylinder walls would take the Scraping for a little while but I don't think the injectors would take a tank full of it at 75 diesel/25 UATF.

the fluid is filtered thru the tranny filter when flushed then again before using there cant b ne metal shaving in it or the valve body would plug up. There is a diesel tech that runs strait tranny fluid in his 03 7.3 not had a problem yet. i understand wat your saying. so then why can you burn veggie oil?

Veggie oil actually has better lubricity then diesel! The biggest thing is it's gotta be WARM to use it. You gotta start out on diesel and then switch to veggie.

As for the filter getting the particles out, have you ever dropped the pan on your 4R100? I'm sure you'll be surprised when you see what's collected on the magnetic drain plug!

I for one would not like to risk a 10,000 dollar motor on comprimised fuel just to save a few bucks because honestly, how long is 100 gallons gonna last you? Me, about 1 month. My truck is currently at 126k... it should be around another 150 or so.... that's alotta gallons! After contemplating that scenario, is it worth the small savings?
