  • Waste Motor Oil

    There is alot of talk on other sites about running this in your primary tank; anyone here ever do it? What were your results?

    I've considered it, because I know it works. But... if anything breaks on my truck, whether or not it is my fault, my wife will hang me.

    I also don't use enough engine oil or tranny fluid to make it worth the risk.

      i know of one guy who claims to have been doing this for years in 2 of his PSDs...he goes to places like wal mart and takes there waste oil from the bin and filters it.
      Don't think i would mess with it.

        Another vote for not going to go there....too much to chance and it just wouldn't be worth the risk to me.

          Waste fryer oil has glycerol and stuff, waste engine oil and tranny fluid has metal bits if you want to spray shards of metal through your expensive injectors fine by me. As for me I'll stick with WVO

            From the other sites that discuss this my understanding is that the wmo is filtered just like wvo so any metal debris is removed. There are quite a few people that have been running wmo without any reported issues.

                    Burning it in your motor is better than burying it... or someone else burning it.

                    Same difference right?

                        How about centrifuging for reuse,25% used to 75% new and cut the rest with WVO as Bar and chain oil?I believe the more oil we re use instead of burning will result in less demand for foreign oil.I currently have been using above mixture for bar and chain oil for 2 years with no problems.If you cut with kero you could use either as 2 cycle oil.Spend awile in front of a ASTM chart of petroleum products and you will see with filtration,just how much you can reuse............greasy

                          I can only imagine it would smell just like our old lawnboy mower...

                            I take it that the old mower had shot rings and bad valve seals? LOL...

                              How else do you keep the bugs away while you mow?

                              First thing I'd do with a mower is over fill it with oil and losen the gap on the plug.
