Useing trans. fluid

I know of someone running striaght trans. fluid as diesel fuel. No running two tanks, no mixing, and even starts on it. I run a 1 gallon of diesel to 4 gallons of WVO, but if you own a trans. shop and have unlimited accesse to trans. fluid, I guess its the way to go don't know if long trem there will be any problems but I guess you got to be brave enough to try something new. Even after seeing for my self you could burn WVO, I still for the first month was waiting for it to blow up.

The trans fluid. To be honest i wouldnt do the WVO the way you do it either. WVO needs to be heated to 180 degrees to run properly and prevent coking of the injectors. If you would like info on that take a look in our bio/alternative fuels forum.

I plan to make a preheating holding trank running of the radiator here in the short future. I bought the truck for a $1000 with the intent of being a guinepig for alturnative fuels. Been driving it like that for 9 months and was told the longer you run a straight WVO it would start to have harder and harder cold starts, but it starts as good as the day I got it.

In that one you could probably get away with well filtered ATF for a while. Just not in a newer DI truck. Could probably get away with a 50/50 diesel WVO blend for a while in the warmer months too.

Just wouldnt try it with the PSD
