I just took a tank out of a basement w/ 50-75 gallons of OLD heating oil in it. Im wondering if I can run this in my diesel (99 jetta TDI). I will be filtering it first, to get rid of any debris and growth, and probably mixing it with the B-20 that Ive been putting in my car.
Does anyone have any experience/opinions with this?
I had a couple hundred gallon of heating oil in the basement of a house I owned that burned, and noone would come take it out, so I did it myself and ran it through my 86 F250, no problems. It is dyed, so actually illegal for road use, so be aware of that.. I haven't ever been busted for it, but know of some that have. Basically all the heating oil is is #2 diesel with red dye in it.
