    Default WMO in CUCV

    Anyone burn WMO/Mix in their CUCV? I was wondering what mix would be good in a CUCV? Would likely only be used for long trips so as to keep carbon fowling in the cup to a minimum.

    Many have done it. Posted results normally conclude it works great. Then mostly those posters disappear from the web site. Some return a year or so later asking for help because their truck won’t start or the IP is bad. But, again very few people that post about running waste motor oil follow up with long term reports.

    Will it work? Yes. Can it be done without hurting anything? Yes. Can it cause the small diameter IP drive shaft to snap if too thick of a fuel is put into it in cold or even mild weather? Yes. Can it cause internal IP failure from impurities in the used oil? Yes. Can it cause fuel injectors to fail early? Yes.

    If I seem to be coming across as against the idea. It is because in a 6.2 engine I think it is a bad idea. I have run WMO in a multi fuel M35 for several years. I filtered it. I changed my fuel filters regularly and I thought I was saving money in a truck designed to run oil as a fuel. Now I have a bunch of goo and gunk in my fuel tank, a leaking IP and a truck I will probably spend more money fixing that what I saved in fuel cost.

    I suggest you you stick to diesel on the 6.2.

    Just REMEMBER that ANY mutilfuel engine IS designed as a THROW A-WAY diesel engine, just because it can run on battlefield collected crap dose NOT mean that it is good for a long life expectancy, anything AFTER the crap fueled mission is a PLUS.

    ALSO the clearances in a multifuel ip are very sloppy so it can run on crap if needed, compared to standard diesel engine which has VERY tight clearances.

    And a lot of the abrasive grit in WMO is smaller than 2 micron.

    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....

    Ok, I didnt check the TM on waste oil, should have searched. I like my CUCV too much to hurt it. Thank you.
