If it were me then I would begin to use it at say a 10% hydraulic/ 90% diesel mix and go from that point. I have recieved some WMO that would smoke more than others which I blamed on possible syn oil. I do not go past a 50/50 mix with WMO so that would be my stopping point,but others run a higher ratio.

Just make sure of good filtration.

filtration is not an issue as the fluid is brand new but i just dont have a use for it. so what should i do with it? i dont want to smoke like hell so i guess ill start with 10% and move up? it is totally syn.

hydraulic oil should be about the same as trans fluid and I have ran that at 80% you should be fine wish I had it.

From my experience synthetics will not completely combust. Probably not a good idea.

ran full synthetic hydraulic oil at 50/50 with #2, didn't have any immediate issues, but my injectors went out almost a year later...
injectors with 278K miles running tuning... LOL
you'll be fine. start with 10-15%, work up and see where your truck likes it.
