Bio + WMO mix?

Since the weather has warmed up I've made my annual switch to B100 sold locally because it's 40 cents cheaper per gallon. I have about 20 gallons of unfiltered WMO that I've saved from my last few oil changes. Some of the oil is rotella blend 5w-40 and some is mobil 1 5-40 full synthetic and some is non-synthetic.

I have an in line spin on baldwin filter I added to my fuel system, how much should I filter the oil before I put it in my tank?

I'd probably only add 10% WMO at most, I'm in no real rush to burn it especially if it puts my engine at higher risk of failure.

Thanks

BTW my truck is described in my sig

Kind of off topic but where are you buying your Bio? Bursaw?

You lived in Concord eh? Did you go to CCHS? I was class of 2004.

What's the price for Bio down there? Newport Biodiesel was $3.50 last summer IIRC
