home heating oil uses

Can I use home heating oil in my diesel? Some guys are telling me I can with no problems. Just recently converted my home to nat. gas and have a tank with about 100 gallons of oil in it. Hate to just get rid of it. Thoughts?

No you cannot, this is not your grandfathers diesel engine, it has emissions equipment on it among other things.

An oil burner is NOT and oil burner....

Home heating oil is made differently (or can be) from on-road diesel fuel.

The sulfur content can, and does, vary and certain additives in "on-road" fuel are not in home heating fuel.

And before anyone else asks... no... you can not add 2-stroke oil to ones fuel for lubricity!!!

Wait buy a $40,000+ truck and run "non-approved" fuel through it.

How's about using 3 or 4 gallons of the heating oil mixed with a full tank of diesel? It seems that diluted like that it wouldn't hurt - or would it? The guy probably just wants to get rid of the left over oil. This is a question, not an answer.

Not in an EGR controlled motor with a VGT turbo, you are just asking for problems. Call the oil recycling companies and let them come and get it.

The diluted stuff may burn, but it is still going through your very sensitive (and expensive) injectors.

m350 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I am thinking you could definetly find some one to take the oil,,probobly buy it from you, I would never call a waste oil company to get it out of there,,,that is foolish,,and costly,,,not a big deal to pump it out of your 275 gallon tank,(most common) if one is careful. Damn if I lived near ya,,I would make a deal on it ! Almost time to buy some more of that Red Gold !!

I know many people that run home heating fuel in both new and older dodge ram diesels as well as 2006 model F-350's with no problems. They all have up to 100K miles on them also.

44,000 on running it, no problem. The guy I get it from removes heating oil tanks, in my neck of the woods, the stuff is not dyed. He has 400,000+ on his E350 running it.
