    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.

    I don'r know about JP-8, but I would definitely NOT use WMO in this application. Way to many toxic substances. I would use a waste oil boiler such as Murphy's, or one at least one that the fumes are vented.

    Many states have banned on road use of MV's. Even Canada has made driving them difficult. In a flash all of your work money and work is wasted. Watch your State Legislator closely! This can be done by setting up an automatic send of all State Bill proposals. Once it's law, it's hard to get it changed.

    In the 70's, one of my friends made one for our office. We had unlimited quantities of waste oil and diesel. He was a Cracker Jack welder, and used good, (Army) material. It worked great! The only down side is keeping it clean. That was a job for anyone who was currently in the dog house, so to speak. And it was not the safest thing in the world.

    The guy who made it liked it so well, that when it came time for him to get out of the Army, he took it apart one night and packed it up in his household goods, and had the Army ship it to Kooska, Idaho. As it was Summer, no one noticed it until both him and the stove were long gone.
