I am new to the whole Bio-Diesel thing. I assume WMO is Waste Motor Oil or Waste Mineral Oil. I was wondering if you guys could fill me in on WMO. I assume its on the same concept as adding ATF fluid to your fuel. Thanks guys I appreciate this.

I've ran lots and lots of used motor oil. I swear I think the truck runs better on the stuff. I just wish I could get more of it w/ no water or bugs in it.

I just bought some 1 micron filter bags off of ebay and they worked great. Mixed about 4 to 5 gallons a tank.

You filtered it with a filter bag? How do you even do that? Pour from one vessel to another? Please share....IVe got about 100 gallons of used motor oil and access to thousands more if I want it.

I've run wvo for last 50k miles.

I tried wmo once!
Filtered it through my staged filters to 1 micron.
When I ran on it my truck it smoked, all the time a haze came out made it look like my truck had a problem. Forget about a performance tune with it it smoked way more then #2.

When I run on wvo there is no smoke under normal driving. On the smoke tune wvo made halve as much as on #2.

WMO is dirty. Rather have my truck smell like fries then a two stroke, Whatever yer into.

I just took oil from drums we had and pumped it into a five gallon bucket and the poured it threw the filter bad. Where another 5 gallon bucket cought the filtered oil. I usally filltered about 25 to 30 gallons then used a new bag.
Here is a pic of the bag.


Here is a link to the ebay add. That is where I buy mine. http://cgi.ebay.com/Lot-Five-5-1-Micron-Polyester-Filter-Bags-WVO-/350369249309?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5193a2781d

some guys centrifuge it if they use a lot.
Tht is exactly what I do as I burn about 50 gal of WMO per week. I also have a 2 mic in line off of my skid tank that I change at least twice a year that does not seem to restrict the flow after 2500 gal or so of a 50/50 mix. I normally just change them as a precaution.

Ive been running a mix of used atf, wmo, biodiesel and diesel. It deff runs better when you have anything extra in the tank other than pure diesel. I run anywhere from 80/20 bio to atf/wmo to 50/50. Starts harder the more atf/wmo you put in. Other than that runs great. I filter the atf/wmo to 1 micron, the bio is 1 micron as well.
