I run waste motor oil. I filter it down to 2 micron and I haven't had one problem for the last 1500-1800 miles.
ATF is supposed to be good also, I read about people using it, but I don't have any laying around that I can use.
As far as hydraulic oil, try adding 5 gallons of filtered oil to your tank. If you don't notice any problems, add a little more as your confidence increases.
Though in the winter I'm not going to be able to run that steep of a mix, just like the oil gets thicker in the winter in your engine, it will get thicker in my fuel tank to the point where I wonder about the pump.
No matter what kind of alternative fuel you use, make sure you always carry an extra fuel filter and any tools you need to change it on the side of the road. I got burned that way once when I tried to shortcut the process by not filtering down to 2 micron.

I used to actually buy
diesel like a sucker. Now I run WMO.
