Note that most fuel pumps won't survive very long pumping oil. For my filtering and transferring of oil outside the vehicle, I found a power steering pump from an 80s Toyota pickup, mounted it to a board with an electric motor next to it and a belt between them. I use a garden hose on the suction side.

I'll take a pic of it next time I'm at the parents house where that pump currently is. The pump I'm using is one that originally had a suction hose to a remote reservoir, and it's original bracket has a flat side in the right area to easily bolt it to a board.

Sounds like a great idea to me! my 12v pump really suffers when i run unheated oil through it. I mounted a 2nd pump purely for the reason my 1st pump couldn't handle all the oil it was trying to push.

I have 2 friends who ran only filtered oil for over a year before they got a centrifuge setup. They learned quite a few lessons the hard way & one of the biggest lessons is running the right mixture so the fuel pump doesn't burn out quickly. This is a lesson they are still learning (to some degree) but their engines (2001 7.3L Diesels) ran fine (albeit a little smokey) on some really nasty WMO. Centrifuge is by far the way to go but even then we're running it now at 85%/15% - WMO/RUG (aka Regular Unleaded Gas). I have a Walbro GSL-392k fuel pump that seems to be working just fine (approx. 5k miles). We only have 1 tank in our trucks so we don't start/stop on diesel like some suggest.

As far as filtering it to run, I will ask them what kind of filter setup they used but I know they spent a decent amount of money on replacing filters as often as they needed to keep their WMO clean. Their smallest filter was a 1 micron filter & I know they let their WMO settle twice during the filtering process. If you have any specific questions about filtering, let me know & I'll ask them what they did since all I know about is our centrifuge setup.
