Don't Do it!! I have run sme tests using a variation of Diesel, WVO, SVO, and good ol #2diesel. adding diesel additive greatly destabilized the oil promoting much quicker polymerization than even just WVO alone. However diesel added to the oil at a rte of 10:1 appeared to all but eliminate the tendency for polymerization. Bottom line, just keep doin what your doin.

Can you post a link to the pics I once saw of your wife's muffin tins filled with all of the fuels and additives you experimented with? Those were great pictures. I was especially interested to learn that a little DK caused greatly accelerated polymerization.

911 additive

I dump in a bottle of 911 into my storage tank....even tho i filter and heat and run my oil through a centrifuge I pour in a bottle of 911 to guard against any water that might sweat into the tank.....this is the only additve i use. 911 is used to stop diesel from gelling and for water in fuel....i figure if it works for diesel it should work fine for WVO

So your saying polymerization will be increased by adding additives? What are you adding to make up the 10% energy loss?
