Burning new Hydraulic oil?
I have a 2002 7.3 and I usually mix in some 2 stroke ashless oil in my tank, like a quart a tank, but I install elevators for a living and every job I do I have about 5-10 gallons of new ISO 32 Hydraulic oil. Am I going to have any issues mixing this with my diesel fuel? The most I have tried is 3 gallons with 20 gallons of diesel and my truck ran so much quieter and power and mileage didn't seem to suffer.
Any tips or input would be great.
I also have a basically unlimited supple of used hydraulic oil, but I worry about the multistage filtering process I would have to invest in as well as the ability to remove any metal, which in the oil we pull out is rare, but fine particles could still be in there.
