virgin peanut/soy blend

I just bought 100plus gallons of peanut/soy turkeyfryer blend for $0.90 per gallon ( a grocery store marked a pallet of it down from $27.99 for 3 gallon jugs to $2.79) my plan is to run the oil in a blend when I go on vacation this summer with my 04 6.0. What ratio should I use?

In a 6.0, as a blend, I recomend 0%.

I would sell the oil on craigslist to someone better suited to burn it, for example someone with a two tanks system or for B100 production. Ask $2 gallon, and use the proceeds to buy D2 and enjoy a trouble free vacation. At least you could double you money.

You may quickly eat up and savings, and cause some serious frustrations along the way. I.e filter issues, injector issues, fuel pick up screen, etc....

Im sure lots of users will be along shortly, and offer their experiences. I however, would not risk it. A 6.0 is nothing to be experimenting on in my opinion.

Sorry for causing the bummer man, just wanted to warn you.

I am unclear what you mean by "blend," unless you mean blending your vegetable oil with petroleum distillates. if you are interested in such a blend, then you will find that the members of this forum are not interested in blending, but there is a forum that is nothing but blending. You can find them at this link BeyondBiodiesel.org - Index

That is a rediiculous answer, when I lived in AZ, and had a 7.3 IDI I ran straight veggy(soybean), to say that this forum is all or nothing, and that I should pound sand is uncalled for. I know that a 6.0 is more sensitive than a 7.3 idi, and even a 7.3 powerstroke, but, it can successfully run some veggy oil. I am just looking for a ratio suggestion from someone that has run it in the past. In the mindwest we do not have the high temps like AZ,so I am going to run it this summer, this is virgin food grade oil, no water or contaminates, 6.0 fuel systems are similar to 7.3 powerstrokes,the in tank pickups are the same so what ratio mix is the sweet spot?

Its your truck and you can put anything you want in the fuel tank. Hell why not just run RUG, its cheaper than diesel??

You asked the question and you are getting an answer from someone who truly knows what they are talking about. If you don't like the advice given then you should seek other opinions. I am sure you will find many out there. Ultimately the decision is yours and i am pretty sure you wont find anyone on this site that will recommend you blend vo with 2D in your 6.0... a 7.3 maybe but like Veggin already stated you are asking for trouble.

Then again you could seek advice from a non-powerstroke site which will tell you that you can blend vo all day....

An IDI diesel is a totally different animal than the powerstroke. Do not blend any wvo in that diesel tank would be my recommendation.
If you do, please promise to take pictures and show us the carnage when it occures. Its not IF, its WHEN.

Do a HPT on it first. I was given 10 35lb cubies of peanut, canola, and clear frying oil. All failed HPT.

this past summer I was mixing about 20-25% WVO in my truck each fill up....I did not have a single problem and saved some money at the pump. I am not sure I would do it in the 6.0

With all respect due to you and your success in your brave experiment....

I dont recomend this. It has been proven to be detrimental numerous times in an HEUI injected engine.

I just wanted to have this documented for future users reference. Its a BAD idea.
