Advice on first batch of waste motor oil

After reading through different forums on wmo, I decided to go this direction. My plan is to run 25% wmo in my 4bt cummins diesel in my 35 ford pickup rat rod. My injector guy says no problem at 25% on the older cummins. What about 25% in my 03 excursion 7.3 power stroke? This is my filter process. I put 5 gallons of wmo mixed with 5% gasoline in a 5 gallon bucket filtered through a blue surgical cloth rag with a spout about 2 inches from bottom. I let it settle for 24 hours plus. Then filtered through another blue rag into another 5 gallon bucket with outlet 2 inches from bottom. I then pump it with a hand barrel pump through a culligan 25 micron house water filter and then through a 5 micron filter. My concerns; it is still pretty dark and will it stay suspended with the diesel. I did do a 25% mix and put it in a clear jar. I won't know till morning but it does seem to look consistent. This is new to me so what are your thoughts?

FYI, at the steelmill i work at we run a 70/30 mix of diesel/transformer oil in our 6bt gensets. When we do an oil change. It holds 10,000 gallons. I almost got to take it all home until someone spilled the beans on what I was going to do with it.
That mother ...... lol

Sweet. What kind of MPGs you get in that thing. Did you find an old bread truck with the TH400 trans with it.

It came out of a Frito lay chip truck. It has the gm465 4speed trans with the granny gear. I put 2.28 gears in so now I'm getting 30 plus going 70-75mph. I want to slow down to 60 and see how many mpg I can get.

I was sooo hoping to find one of them Frito lay trucks. I was going to do a Jeep Cherokee or 4door S10 blazer but my wife's car was going down hill sooner than later so I got her the Liberty CRD. Great little Jeep BTW.

I would like to offer some advice on the use of WMO in a powerstroke, since you asked. Its pretty straight forward..

Dont do it.

filters arent good enough. Buy an American made gravity fed CF if you intend to run WMO. Then, put it in a waste oil burner and heat the shop with it. Use the money you save on heating and buy quality B100 or D2.
Thats my advice.

Thanks for the advice, that's what I was wanting. I feel a little better running it on the older cummins, but hesitant on the 7.3.
