    The ONE thing NOBODY tells is HOW TO GET THE ACID OUT OF THE BLEND, even after a long fast spin, the acid is still there, being that everything but the multi is NOT A THROW AWAY ENGINE, there is no way someone can say the acid is not hurting things, more clearances, in the ip/injectors, valves, ect. REMEMBER there is a REASON the multi is a throw away.

    I haven't had too much experience with negative acid effects....heard folks talk about it but never seen anything untoward first hand. My thought is that if the bottom of the pistons and crank bearings can withstand it, the fuel system oughta be able to as well, especially after it's been cleaned. After 20-25k and pulling my injectors, I didn't see anything alarming such as accelerated wear, coking, etc.

    This leads me to conclude that filtration is insufficient and WMO would need to be centrifuged to be safely usable. Hardly seems worth the effort for small scale....
    Thanks for your comments on this subject. Very insightful!

    Do you have any personal experience with using a centrifuge on WMO? Or, were you filtering it for use in your truck?

If you're willing to take the time to centrifuge, settle out water, check viscosity blends, and so forth, WMO can be worthwhile. If you take short cuts though, it can be a real headache.
    Thanks for sharing news of your success.

    Are there any tutorials you’d recommend on exactly how to do it right?

    I'm happy to share what I've learned, this'll keep the next person from repeating my same mistakes. The closest thing to a tutorial is a thread over on Pirate4x4 that I contributed too, here's a link to it:

    https://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/tow-...il-diesel.html

    How much oil are you looking to use per month? A centrifuge, IMHO, is the only way to go. It's not that expensive, pulls most of the dirt out, and isn't very hard to set up. My setup (when I'm not overseas) is a 108 gph centrifuge and I normally clean 250-275 gallons of oil at a time. I'll centrifuge the batch for 30+ passes (3+ days) and have no reservations about the cleanliness of my fuel afterwards.

    I can give you some more tips but if you start with that thread, you'll see my recounting of running WMO in my 7.3PSD Excursion and 8.3 Cummins.

    Thanks!

    Which centrifuge do you recommend? Do you heat the oil, too?

    Apologies, been out in the field and missed a few messages. My centrifuge is from PABiodiesel. They’re a great company (more or less one man shop), offer great support, and their stuff works. As for heating the oil, I don’t because of the gas I add. The gas thins the oil down by itself and if I heat it, it will evaporate more than it already does.
