Wvo

Is there a formula for mixing waste veggie oil with diesel fuel so it would be safe?
I remember the Frantz oil filters using a roll of toilet paper and it really filtered the oil, I mean almost clear. I was wondering if any one has ever used that type of oil filter.>>

If you want to run WVO it is best to have a heated 2 tank system. WVO & diesel will not stay mixed in your fuel tank.

WVO and Diesel WILL stay mixed, as long as you get non hydrogenated oil. I had heard people say that over and over, so I got a mason jar and tried it. I put 50-50 in it and let it sit, checking it every day, and it hasn't seperated yet, almost a month later. I'm going to get some pictures on here for people to look at. However, to not get much more than the consistency of diesel fuel, you can't go above about 15%, which isn't worth fooling with. But, in an old IDI truck, I am running 100%, but you need a small heater, not up to 160 like most people say, just get it up there enough that its not COLD going in. In the summer time, it worked fine, but now I have stopped b/c it got to where I couldn't pump it through my filtration system it was so cold, so I figured it that thing wouldn't pump it, how was my Injection pump supposed to pump it! So I am now looking for a small inline heater like they put on big trucks way up north.
