oil infuel???

One ofmyfriends has a 2006 dodge cumminsand he alwasya puts his used oil in his fuel tank and he says it lubes the engine but it also smokes more. And his truck smokes like crazy and also has 1200 ftlbs which is badass but i didnt know if that was truck with putting oil in your fuel tank. Can this be bad or good? has anyone done it?

I would stay away from putting anything in your fuel besides additive. there are a few forums on here that go in depth. Besides it will be blueish smoke not black..

i just put a quart of tranny fliud in with my last tank and no problems. my buddy went to the diesel institute and is a mechanic and he said they put tranny fliud in the fuel on big trucks all the time. he said maybe not every tank but every so often helps keep things lubed. i dont know about the smoke though. another buddy of my has an 02 PSD and someone told him to put motor oil in his fuel to increase the mileage so he tried it and didnt notice a mpg difference but it didnt hurt. it just helps lube your pumps and injectors cuz they took all the sulfer out of the new fuel.

I would really worry about putting anything red in my fuel, I hear the fine for running non-taxed diesel is pretty steep. I would also worry about ruining a $2,500 set of injectors, it may work great but for peace of mind I think I’ll stick with additives that are made for it.

Used oil is especially hazardous, since who know what sort of filings from the bottom of the pan and suspended solids are lurking in there. Hate to ruin injectors and fuel pump by anything that would sneak past the filter

It is very dangerous to run used oil through your motor . Also tranny fluid is not that great for it either. I dont know about you but i would not want to be caught with even the slightest red tint in my fuel. $$$$ to the state if you get caught

The only addvantages of ORD is that it's cheaper. It's the exact same fuel but it's dyed red to indicate that it is not taxed. It is illegal to operate a vehicle on any state or federal road with anytype of fuel that is not taxed. Goes into the Tax-ivasion category. (This is the same reason that some are getting boned for running WVO...but it's easier to get away with.)

a little bit o clean tranny fluid wont hurt a thing.... when you change fuel filters
on the macks or L-10's on up, thats what you prime the filter with. like its been

It is illegal to put any offroad fuel in onroad trucks big or small and even farm trucks. Offroad fuel is dyed for that reason, so even if you add tranny fluid (wich is a good lube) if you get caught it's a hefty fine.
