WMO Filtration

I found probably a gold mine for me as far as getting ahold of WMO and WTF. I can get as much as i need for free. Probably 5 to 10 gallons or more per day.

So what all am i gonna need to set up a good filtration system? I'd like some drawings too if ya got em.

Heres what i think ill need so far. A plastic drum for the unfiltered oil, some cheese cloth or something for a screen to prefilter it before it goes in the barrel, an electric or manual pump, and a 2 micron filter then tubing from the filter to run straight into the tank. What is the best way to set this up? Is this a good way to do it goin straight to the tank after filtration?

On a side note, i am aware of the opinion that this is a bad idea and it ruins injectors etc. Please keep these comments to yourself. I have yet to hear of anyone actually having problems from doing this, yet have heard many stories of guys doing this for 50k or more miles with no issues. I will be keeping track of how many gallons i have used and will definitely make a thread about it if i have issues.

You wont find anyone here that runs WMO through their engine Jake. Search cumminsforum you will find plenty of people that ruined pumps and injectors running WMO

Even filtering it down to like 1 or 2 microns? How could it be any worse than running WVO, there is a lot of junk in that that gets filtered out then runs fine.

I run WVO in my 97 using a set up like the one you drew and I have no issues. I just warm it up on diesel first, then switch to the WVO.

Im just gonna dump the oil straight into the tank. It'll be a mix of oil and diesel, probably 25% oil.

WVO doesnt have metal particles in it

I dont recommend WMO in anything other than an old IDI engine

1 to 2 microns should be just fine. I know people who just dump it straight into their tank, mixing it with diesel @ 1:4 ratio. the 4 being diesel.
