Default No WMO users here?

Or is everyone hiding from the uneducated bashers?

Just not a ton of alternative fuel guys in here to begin with, and I think even most of the WVO guys shy away from the WMO.

While it can be done in a powerstroke, it's best sticking with a mechanical injection system for waste oils.

Not totally true, you just have to be smart about it. I have been running it for a couple years. Ran it for about 20K in my 6.4, about 40K in a CR Cummins, and Now my 6.0.

Not here to argue with anyone, it's been working well for me. I was just curios if there were others here doing it.

I ran it for two years....it was fine. Haze at idle was a bit much but any egts above 500degrees it cleaned right up.

No centrifuge. I ran it through filters. I started driving my designated work truck more often and i quit messing with it. That was back in 2013.

Yeah, it can/has been done.
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?

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.

That's reassuring! I've got eight or nine engines to run it through, in varying configurations.
Ten percent on the fuel cost, after paying for the equiptment-centrifuge, basically-would be substantial.
Filters cost me next to nothing, and I may know a couple pipefitter on that part of it!
