Question about WMO/WVO

I have some old motor oil and vegetable oil I was going to experiment with. My questions is, can I just filter and filter this stuff and then add it right to my tank without a heater. I was thinking about 5 gallons of WMO/WVO to 33 gallons of diesel. Would that be ok without a tank heater? I'm in South Jersey, the daily temps are in the 70's now.


I bought a Allergy pillow that is suppose to have 1 micron sized pores in order to stop dust mite poop or something, think that will work as a filter?

Thanks everyone!

will it run yes. do we advise it, not at all.

in the interest of truck longevity a wvo build is much safer as well as a centrifuge for filtering.

NO to WMO in any ratio.
NO to WVO without properly converting.
NO to any waste oil product without being centrifuged (JMHO)


NO NO NO NO NO NO alternative fuel until you do your homework.

Veggin is right. Do your homework and make your own decision because ultimately you get to pay the repair bill

here is a guide

1. understand the psd fuel system - the HEUI sticky is a great one
2. look at the pics of what a centrifuge pull out of oil that a regular fileer doesnt
3. assess your driving situation, which is better for you biodeisel or wvo
4. check out the DIY and DFA setups, - note the D2 pump in my DIY sticky is incorrect. i wil fix it soon. tubular031 has some great pics of his setup.

there is a thread on here somewhere that leads to another forum, DFA or Frybrid or soemthing. it shows engine damage to due improper conversion i think. if not is has to do with running biodeisel with wvo... start there, youll get a ton of info.

like veggin said, we have a great resource here, i love it. we are happy to discuss!

Blending in general is a bad idea, however, most folks who are blending and having failures are using much more WVO and less diesel. 5 gal in 30 gal of diesel i would not think would cause much harm (I can't believe im saying that) but it also wouldn't produce enough savings to make it worth any risk.
Do the research on this and after learning all you can, either do it full blown with a 2 tank system of forget it...just my opinion.

I assume you are running WMO, given the nature of you post. Sooooooo, I'm sure this is what YOU see in YOUR centrifuge after processing WMO.

Fist good study

WMO

Second good study

WMO Centrifuge Results


This ^^^^ should be an eye opener, not to mention the unreasonable amount of polution you are dumping into the enviroment needlessly by burning WMO.

Cold WMO/WVO/ATF+Cold engine=Carbon/Coking
Carbon+Time= Catastrophic engine failure.

These ARE facts.
Discuss freely........
