    In an emergency situation I ran 85-140 gear oil because I was out of fuel and had 2.5 gallons of the gear oil in the tank. It took a bit to get everything primed, but it ran like a champ. Nearest station was about 5 miles away, added 10 gallons of diesel to get me home (where I filled up with WMO).

    i know you can use cooking oil that is diluted with wmo but what about the peanut oil that is used for deep fryers like people like to use around the holidays to deep fry the turkeys. could the peanut oil be used as well as long as it is filtered enough?

    It should work. I am running used soybean oil that came from two area resturaunts. They were used for fish, chicken and french fries. I filter it and it works great. I put about 15 gallons of the wvo in my trucks tank this weekend, added about 2.5 gallons of filtered wmo and some gasoline as a thinner. This blended with whatever diesel I had in my tank at the time. I smell good going down the road.

    I believe the diesel engine was originally designed to run on peanut oil.

    Imported fuel is expensive. 30 Bucks for three gallons and 120 calories a tablespoon.
    I don't know what that is in BTU or octane or cetane but I know it fires good in the multi-fuel.
    Almost nothing on the coffee filter I used. This is going right in the tank.
    This is free post-turkey fuel. The turkey sucked up a pint or two of it.

    Last year I found out that after one dumps the peanut oil one can not store new motor oil in the plastic container, the NMO ate the plastic but it can hold peanut oil!

    I don't know how much dimethylpolysiloxane (dimethicone) is in there but last year there was no effect that i could discern when constantly mixed and filtered with the "other" fuels. Maybe 2-1/2 gallons of PO mixed with 47 gallons of fuel, mostly NMO. I keep the tank full.
