blended wvo fuel

well I found another wvo source and am back up and running, but not really happy with the performance, mileage, and harder starting of blended wvo.
My blend is 40gal wvo/ 5gal RUG/ 1qt Powerservice additive/ 8oz MMO/ 8oz mineral spirits. with this I'm getting 14-15mpgs where with dino I average 18mpgs.
Anybody else blending and care to share their formula?

mods thus far:
1704 tuner gizmo, BHAF, 4" DP to 5" stack, FPR w.109 shim, disconnected wastegate, plethora of gauges, 10k mod w/ 20k resistor (removed after it jacked up my connector), 17*HPOP (not really), hybrid sticks (I wish), some kinda badass turbo (another lie), mega body damage (that's gospel).

Thats not exactly to good for your injectors. Hence the drop in MPG

For the PSD, roughly 20% Jet-A, 5% RUG, 1 ounce of both naptha and turpentine per every 10 gallons of WVO.

thanks FiremedicEric, would kerosene replace Jet A? BTW, my blend was for my '93 CTD.

I know nothing about the Cummins. Kerosene would replace the Jet-A
