    Most of your diesel / kerosene jet flame type heaters should run just fine so long as it's filtered and blended with diesel or kerosene. Not sure how much smoke it might put off but if you do try it I'd be curious to know.

    I didnt think of burning a mix in a "torpedo" type heater. Thanks for the idea/prod!

    Looks clear enough to me. We use waste JP-8 drained out of vehicles at work. We sometimes have to clean the fuel lines and metering device but these heaters are extremely simple to work on.

    I made use of waste oil in an H45 tent heater. It was clean diesel mixed with contaminated diesel, a small amount of ATF, and additional small amount of WMO. Probably 3 gallons of clean diesel to 2 gallons of assorted waste. Heater lit and burned it adequately, but continuously burned rich...slightly excessive smoke, soot, and it liked to flare in the stack every once it a while. I didn't really need it for the heat and didn't like the extra cleaning it brought on, so I decided it was more useful fuel to help burn a pile of wet brush that needed gone, so I instead used it for that.
