I posted this up on Compd
so I figured I would post it here too.
I have been running a blend of WVO
and diesel. Its going great. My monthly fuel bill is down from 600 bucks to 100 bucks.
I started out as any leery person would with a slight mix of WVO
. I was running 25% WVO
to 75% diesel. I am now up to 75% WVO
and 25% diesel. Been going on now for a few months and I have noticed that the engine runs smoother and quieter. I change my filter out every month or two because the engine wont show any signs of clogging, it will just blow the seal out. I lost about 5 gallons of fuel the other day like this. But it didn't bother me at all since I really don't pay that much for it. I am mixing a 15 to 20% mix of kerosene in with the WVO
to keep it thin enough. In the winter I bump that up alittle just until I feel the viscosity is right. I do use some anti-gel agent in the winter along with the mixture. We also use a splash of gasoline to bring the flash point back down on the oil. So say you are going to make 20 gallons just for the sake of you knowing what and how much to mix.
20 gallons of WVO-Highly filtered down to 5 microns.
2 to 3 gallons of Kerosene
1 gallon of gasoline.
(Winter) 10 ounces of anti gel in the red bottle. I think its called diesel kleen.
Your good to go with that mix. Use your best judgment. Not everyone can afford new internals if something goes wrong. If you feel its too thick. Add another splash of kerosene. It should be a tad bit thicker than diesel.
Well thats all I can tell ya. Cant tell you where to get your oil so don't ask. But stay away from kfc and mexican oil. Its no good to use from my findings. So this should clear up everyone whining about fuel costs right??? I hope so.
Have fun. Be safe, and drop me a line with questions. If you find yourself in a bind that I didn't cover then you can call me in the afternoons at 940-923-1066. Names Daniel
