Waste motor oil and Diesel fuel blend

I have started using a 50/50 blend of waste motor oil and diesel fuel in my 95 powerstroke. Filtered through a 10 micron primary filter and then a 2 micron filter before pumping into the tank. I only have about 300 miles use so far, but have noticed no difference in performance. It does smoke a little more though. Does anyone here have any experience using blended fuels? Is there a way to remove the carbon from the used oil easily? I am new to this sight but not new to diesels. Comments/Questions?

I can't help you with the used oil though, Just don't think it is a good idea. But here is a bump for ya.

I wouldnt run used motor oil even if it was filtered. 50/50 seems to be a pretty stiff ****tail of it too??

I have a buddy that has been running 100% filtered waste oil for over a year. He mixes in jet fuel to get the viscosity correct as well as some tranny fluid. Apparently the viscosity is extremely important..

Hmm... I thought about viscosity, but I have heard of others running as much as a 60/40 split without a problem. But then again a gambler usually only tells you of their winnings not there losses. I would be interested in any info you could forward to me. BTW viscosity should drop when running at NOT.

i am no pro. but i would think the injectors wouldn't care for it much. and 50/50? seems like thats a pretty hefty dose of used oil.

I've started using a 2 stroke ashless synthetic oil in both of my diesels. It seems to be quieter and the mileage has improved.
