Yup, waste oil furnaces are the best My cousin installs/ cleans them. Very efficant, very cheap as long as you have a good source to fuel it.

yup you could do that, my bud filters it and burns it in his loaders and old DT466 powered feed trucks..not recommended but not near as risky on an old mechanically injected motor...lol.

I think your probably better off getting one thats professionally made. That way you know its a proven design and you have people to help you if you have any problems. Plus a home made oil furnace will never be as efficiant as a profesional furnace.

These are the ones that my cousin works on Clean Burn - Waste Oil Heater, Waste Oil Furnace, & Used Oil Recycling Probably the best furnace on the market.

Alot of guys are running WMO in their trucks. I wouldn't recommend it for your 6.0 though. You could look into cracking it & make diesel fuel out of it. Have no idea what is involved in that process though. Do you have a pool? Perhaps you could gear up some kind of waste heater that burns WMO to heat it.

One perhaps real easy thing you could do is find some guys that are running WMO in their trucks & sell it to them.
