the bul crsap you got to go through to use the cookong oil sure dosent make sence to me unless you could get hundreds oof gallons of the stuff. as far as atf,,run it through a good oilfiter and drive. atf mixed with about 75% diesel fuel runs great.

Any of the WEO's will run at 10% - no problem. Used engine oil, used trans oil, used power steering oil, tractor hyd oil, and transformer oil - I have run all of these at around 20% in the boss's truck, he provided the barrels and pump.
The additive package for some of the oils has changed since so the 10% recommend as a limit unless you do your own fuel system work.

For HP gear lube if it needs to go with the mix I would cut it 10:1 into a lighter oil before mixing with #2.

Same on veggie oil but much more care in filtering and check for sodium content. New is no sodium content but used may be corrosive with salt.

Likewise I would avoid red dye in the oil because of the tax consequences.
