WMO, a few questions

Hello.
I'm now to the alternative fuels thing. Just had some questions. I do alot of oil changes for friends and family and have plenty of WMO. What is the best filtration process to turn this into fuel? Also, can you burn waste synthetic or does it have to be dino oil?

What engine do you have? If it's not an idi don't burn it... And if It is I still wouldn't. There's no way to get the heavy metals out which is horrible for injectors

If you've got a friend with a restaurant get some veggie oil from them and burn that

Well I can get the WMO for free. I was looking at gravity filtering it thru some sock filters and magnets, then a centerfuge. WVO is hard to come by around here. WMO is plentiful. I have a 6.0

I wouldn't, especially with a 6.0. The injectors in a six oh are even more fragile than in a 7.3.

WMO is a major NO with a 6.0! Even Veggie has to be done right with those. You'll spend more money on repair bills than you'll save in fuel

Post your question on The Dieselsite. Alot of guys running WMO on there. No one running it in a 6.0 that I am aware of.

There are guys running syntheic with no reported problems. If you centrifuge & then pump the oil through a absolute 2/5 micron spin on filter you will get the oil clean enough but you will most likely be the guinea pig for running WMO in a 6.0. Are you willing to take that chance? Very pricey parts on the 6.0.

WMO from a gas engine isn't too bad or difficult to clean, but oil from a diesel is as black as I don't know what, and hard to get clean. Clean enough for me anyways.

If you can last 10,000 miles with burning WMO then its worth it even if at 10,001 miles the motor goes toast. You will have to mix it with about 15% gasoline. I dont understand why people use the "get the hard metal" excuse. Most of that will filter out and either way its soft carbon which is nothing more then sludge. I plan to turn my truck into a guinea pig with WMO in about 2 years but using the V3 system. I have already put 12,000 miles with veggie so that is enough to pay for an engine rebuild and its still running perfect.

Hmmm. I was going to mix it 25WMO to 75#2 in the winter and 50/50 in the summer. You think it's better to mix with gas though?
