Mineral Oil?

Mineral Oil? My buddy has some weird ideas. His friend offered him a bunch of mineral oil(used to cool xray machines) and stuff, i doubt this stuff is very combustible, his buddy is going to run it and see if he doesnt blow up his truck...lol. what ya'll say? Im not optimistic about it.

Here is a hair brain idea. Throw some on a fire to see if it burns. If that works he can try putting some in a squirt bottle and misting it over a torch.

One of my contractor buddies runs his Cummins on what he insists is straight mineral oil. He's done it for over 100k miles. Seems to run fine, but I would NOT do that to my vehicle.

It will run. Is it the old standard or the new standard?

If its the old standard good chance you might get cancer. The newer standard you are ok on that end.

Either way if you do run it you need to mix it with something for lubricity if you like your injectors.
