No Reaction

I have some oil I picked up from somewhere that just will not react, no amount of lye will make it seperate and make bio with my blender batches. I also used WVO in a few of my trucks, is this oil that won't react still good for running as straight veggie?

For it not to react chemically there would have to be some sort of contamination.
You might get away using it but it would be risky.

I've been expermenting with burning WMO and recently
had a batch from the neighbor (delo 400) that must
have been a blend of dino and synthetic (silicon based?).
Burning about a gallon of it produced an extra quart and
a half on my dripstick. It was definitely not water..

The only thing I could figure out was , the silicon based
synthetic was pushed by the piston rings. This happened
in both my 87' 6.9 and my MBZ non-turbo 300.
I spent 36 years working for an airline as a mechanic,
so I've these fluids for along time but I have never
used them in my personal vehicles.

Hey maybe one could start selling oil out of ones' own
crankcase!! ... maybe invest a centerfuge. I've felt
for many years that synthetic oils would become
cheaper than those that are dino based.
