Epoxidized soybean oil
 
The question is.... Can I run this stuff? I just picked it up, and the guy told me it was soy bean oil. Now come to find out it is Epoxidized soybean oil... So help me out guys, can I make this stuff work?

It's used to make plastics, and I wouldn't use it.....

That was my gut reaction. Since then I have done some research, and found that the flash point is actually lower than that of vegetable oil (which I currently run). I dunno, might do some testing to see what heat does to it..

So... I pumped some of the oil out today... No way in hell will I put this crap in my truck!
