You can mix it with anything or nothing. There is no right or wrong. One rule is you better not think about running 8t straight in the winter. People told me to not use it at all in the winter. So i oarked my truck on Thanksgiving of 2011 and had a half tank of diesel to which I topped off the truck with clean wmo. Let it sit and by that weekend it was 5deg out. It was as liquid as diesel fuel is. Fired it tight up with 240k mile stock injectors.

Edit:i refuse to correct my spelling errors anymore. They change after I hit post.

Just stating the fact that mechanical engines are better with it.

I 100% disagree with that. The 7.3 and the 6.0 are probably the most ideal candidates for WVO use, because the fuel flows directly through the head. It can pre-heat fuel better than most other diesels out there.

Mechanical engines are simpler, for sure, and easier to repair in most cases, and more forgiving. But if done correctly, at least with WVO, I prefer 7.3's and 6.0's. The key is doing it correctly. Starting and shutting down on #2, and only burning WVO when it's heated.

Have you tried running small amounts through the tank, continually? Say 10%, mixed in the tank? As opposed to starting and stopping on #2, and running the wmo in between?

No, and I wouldn't do that in any case, no matter what engine platform I was running it on. Unless it was a vehicle I truly did not care about.

I wont run WMO either, it was WVO I used.

10-4, I misread your post.
Why wouldn't you run wmo? Assuming it was clean? As in, through a centifuge, clean?
I know a lot of guys just use filters, but I wouldn't run just filtered oil through an injector, either. The centrifuge salesman claim near perfect oil, is the reason I ask.

The 6.4L Powerstroke with the stock fuel cooler / heater was slick. It kept the WMO above 80 degrees prior to hitting the CP3.

Made things quit nice for viscosity. The only downfall was the pathetic stock lift pump, which was easily replaced.

I can agree with that. But that's the only advantage.

Sorry, same thing but made by Siemens and a little more flow. I unfortunately did two years of hell dealing with the Common Rail Cummins.

Had to go back to powerstrokes because I was tired of maxing out my AAA towing...

That is exactly what I've done in my 12v. Mixed up to 15% WMO in with #2 and ran it that way all the time.
