You will first have to filter it to 5 microns so it will pass thru the fuel filter without problems.

I can't tell you about the 6.0 or any power stroke for that matter. However, I have been running a 50/50 mix of WVO and diesel for the past 3-4k miles. I make sure it doesn't have any water in it and I filter it through a pillowcase into a 55 gallon drum.

It's not as simple as dumping it in. If you did a search on WVO, Waste Vegetable Oil, you get all the info you need.

What you are doing is called Blending. Some guys go as high as 85% WVO.
With a little at 25% in your diesel tank you will start to smell like French Fries.

I just read an independent study lab Listed Soy oil as the best Lubricant of all. I'm sure peanut oil would also be close to that.

When Rudolf Diesel intruduced his engine design, that was what he ran it on, peanut oil!

Have fun,
