I know that hydraulic fluid will burn.. But it's pretty nasty stuff lot's of toxins in there.

I think maybe a 15%/85% mix to try, but I really think that your exhaust will simply stink so badly that your eyes will water.

One of them truckless bastards.

I'd stay away from synthetic, not all the additives ignite completely. Used filter ATF is ok, in your truck up to 80% ATF to 20% #2 would work good

So the hydraulic fluid won't burn completely?

Hydraulic oil will work. I would just suggest not using a large % of synthetic fluid.
