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?
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.
