Re: Blending Toluol (Toluene) with Vegetable Oil to Make VO Blend Diesel Fuel
Yes as kerrynzl said. Toluene, Benzene,acetone,etc. are all found in crude oil and they can exist in differing amounts after refining(distilling). People think they can take A, being oil of whatever origin and mix it with B, solvent of whatever origin and make diesel fuel. It MAY burn in a diesel engine but its just a solution of flammable crap. Not diesel fuel.
Gas and diesel are opposites...gasoline function depends on octane and diesels rely on the right cetane numbers.
This is a fairly dangerous hobby to mix solvents and oils. Recycling, as it was stated, or re-using petroleum based solvents that were used in an industrious way is not only dangerous(you dont know what is in them now after use) but could be illegal. Tread very carefully.
