About 2 months ago someone posted that real soon the "blending" questions were going to begin and here they are. In a nice way: Its not going to work. I blended and ended up with clogged filter and a stranded truck on the side of the road 150 miles away from the middle of nowhere. Only way to cut your fuel costs in half is to either convert to 2 tanks or get a car that gets double the MPG.
Good info and always appreciated. I've enjoyed reading your many threads and they are always very informative. Having said that, and to also put it in a nice way: you mixed like 5 gallons of diesel with 10 to 15 gallons of wvo. I'm not talking about doing that. The only thing to consider with D-2 is maybe 5 gallons or so of WVO to a full tank of D-2, which is close to the opposite of what you tried. K-1 doesn't gel like D-2 and that's why I was thinking it could potentially thin the WVO easier/better and thus require considerably less K-1. MAYBE even RUG but no more than say 15-20% to a full tank of WVO........MAYBE
I also recall reading how you were having water issues with your oil around the same time you were exploring with blending. I think you have found a way since then to eliminate your water issues, etc., and that's great. Lot's of folks have issues with water and that can be a battle within itself.
Anyway, blending IS working with many others and the posts are fewer than we'd all like to see, but it is happening and successful users are using realistic blending percentages and using good filtered and de-watered wvo.
From there it's all about concerns of longevity and what might be happening to the engine over time and so far nothing conclusive about that.
Everybody keeps talking about using a seperate heated tank but at the same time it's always issues concerning coking, worrying about keeping optimal temps, monitoring this, monitoring that, and then in the colder months wearing a grill cover, etc. That's after you invest in a good system which is not cheap. So looking into reasonal blending is really not a bad thing
