There are many guys who are doing just this & will tell you it will not harm your engine. There are just as many who will tell you that it is terrible for your engine & is a very bad idea. One this for sure it pollutes much worse then VO.

You will have to decide who to believe & if your willing to take the risk.

Best processing would be a gravity feed centrifuge IMHO. You must heat the oil as well & test to make sure it is water/coolant free. There are also many using the upflow method & then pumping through a series of filters.

There are other sites that have alot of guys running black diesel. I don't think there are too many on this site running it.

Have you looked into running WVO?

Are you cutting it with RUG? What % are you running? How many miles do you have on WMO? how are you processing it?

Despite what the pro's that do this say know that im no pro. I dont f around with gas because i dont have enough knowledge to. Its gas i drive a diesel...compression ignition.... a no no in my book. I run a mixture of red green and wmo but never over 50% wmo. So for me thats a 14gal max for wmo. I have a good 35k+ miles on running it. Only problems are black filters and my truck smells like a tractor. I process it with a small home made container filter thing.

What kind of diesel are you running it in?? And how much do you filter it?? I have a 6.0l thinking about trying it a little at a time. I already have been running used trans fluid in it with no problems, I didn't know if that would be the same way..

Best way to filter is a centrifuge and then run the oil through a 3-5 micron filter before it hits the tank. I don't have as much experience with it as Smut does though.
