I’m not a chemist, but after disposing of wmo and dealing with the carbon build up associated, I’ve been **** bent on finding a sustainable alternative consumable with as little side effects as possible; the resulting product for me was compressor oil.

I have access to hundreds of gallons of this stuff annually, and due to the fact it contains trace refrigerants within in I still maintain epa compliance by gathering it into a barrel, heating it and evacuation down to sub 500 microns to remove the said refrigerant and help remove moisture. Burning refrigerant=Bad

So after it’s clean, and safe to process add 10% ethanol-free 87 to it, and centrifuge to <1micron to create a nearly crystal clear fuel! After burning in both an 8.3, LDT, 5.9 cummins, 7.3 Idi, I’ve come to find starting characteristics are good, smoke is almost non existent after warm up, and power is greater than straight diesel with advanced timing to take advantage of the slower combustion. Exhaust scent is very diesel like, and even a highly attentive nose wouldn’t sniff it out. Including electricity, Cost is less than .50 a gallon.

For all intensive purposes this is intended for off-road usage only and whatever you do with said information I’m not to be held liable for.

I also have about 15 gallons of ref oil and haven't tested it. Have you noticed any differences with either POE or mineral oil?

Test for acid, remove the trace refrigerant, and filter you should be fine. I have noticed the mineral is slightly more Smokey than the poe

Thanks the oil actually is new. Where I do HVAC work the supervisor didn't want to chance it since it was not known how old it was. Still in the metal 5 gal pals.

Lucky for you! I’d add atleast 5% ethanol free to it to break the hygroscopic property of the oil and burn it! It is real bad about attracting moisture

Would the ethanol in reg unleaded pull the water out and participate to the bottom? Or do you know something I'm not thinking about.

I don’t deal with any ethanol fuel in mine tank due to the risk of pump damage and fuel lines rotting
