Used Motor Oil? Does anyone use it to run your diesel?

I was talking with a guy that I know and he was telling me about people runing there diesels on used motor oil mixed with diesel fuel. Like an 80% fuel and 20% used motor oil. Have any of you guys heard of this?

Do a search and you will find many previous posts on this. The general agreement is that is will lead to the premature demise of your engine...
