I run it like crazy. I probably have about 6,000 miles on it so far. 99.5 7.3. If your engine requires ULSD, forget about it. I don't get synthetic, so I don't know.
I filter it twice before putting it in my tank.
I use a home depot GE whole house water filter which is good to 5-10 micron, then it goes through a 2 micron oil/water separator and then right into the tank.
I put in 5 gallons of diesel from a station, then fill the rest with WMO.
It smells like a tugboat and smokes when the engine is cold, but it runs just fine.
The only times I ever had a problem, they were my own fault. I clogged my 2u filter, so I didn't do 2u filtration and within 2 days, I clogged my truck's filter.
I don't know if my second problem was due to that batch since it was so long ago, but--I had a starvation problem under power, I was planning on putting a new fuel system on anyhow, I just hurried my decision. Turns out the pickup screen in the tank had a bunch of crud in it, I do have 265k miles, so who knows.
So when the tank was dropped, all that stuff was cleaned out.
I get my oil from our generators at work. Each oil change yields about 100 gallons, I have a little over 200 gallons in six drums in the generator lot and I plan on putting about 20 gallons in this afternoon, then I'll stop at a gas station a few blocks from work and add my 5 gallons.
In the winter, I doublt I'll be able to do an 80/20 mix that I'm currently doing. I may have to cut back to 50/50, but we'll see.

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