burning waste motor oil

I saw a post that someone is going to burn his waste motor oil after oil changes. I am new to bioD and have not heard about burning WMO. Do you do anything to it before running it, aside from filtering out all of the junk and metal? Do you mix it with your WVO and process it? I know oil will burn, I had a gasser that burned it great after 200,000 miles, my own private smoke screen. Won't it smoke terrible in a diesel also?

I should have continued to read. Just found a post about it. The people in the post don't recommend it either. They stated that it could damage the injectors. I don't think I will try it, I was just curious if it might work.

I posted this in the Dodge forum, but I just heard about a web site that I am very curious about. It is www.myfastfuel.com The process makes sence to me, but what do you guys think? I am hoping some of you guys that really know diesels can check it out and give your two cents worth. I'm pretty gullable (and I don't spell very well either)

You could but my guess is youd clog the fuel filter and injecotrs in the process

1996 Gmc k2500 4x4 6.5 turbo diesel, with mods Blew the head gasket, put all new heads, valves, injecotrs gaskets etc on the truck only to get it together and find out it had no oil pressure, and sounded horrible (pry a spun bearing). SOLD

if you have a 12 valve cummins, 6.5td, or an old idi 7.3l you could indeed run a 50-50% mix of waste motor oil and diesel fuel or less. my brother has done it in his 12v powered chevy, with no issues.

Sure you can use it. Anything that has lubricity can be ran in a diesel engine after all they were intended to be powered by oil in the first place. UH-NO! I see alot of people on the web sayin how great of a deal burnin this and that in their diesel truck but I got sucked into the WVO GIMMICK!
Injectors and LP's aren't cheap and niether is the stress of your wife breaking down on the side of the road. Then discovering what caused your semi-catastrophic failure was your lack of intelligence and cheap ***** not wanting to pay the price for fuel.
I know there are alot of good setups out there for processing legitimate fuel but motor oil has detergents that do not burn without leaving a residue. Residue wiether it's from glycerin or detergents or even stabilizers that are in all lubricants(to prevent breakdown in excessive heat), this will cause some sort of failure on your vehicle.
If it seems too good to be true-IT IS! These trucks are designed and engineered around #2. If you can make it burn clean and combust like #2 then you really have something. However just because your engine runs with your home-brew in doesn't mean that it's running correctly. Such as early detination of the fuel, you'd need to retard your timing due to increased cylinder pressures. These things will change from tank to tank.
Just over-educate youself in this and you'll talk yourself out of it.

I have heard of a few doing it but dump some in before changing there fuel filters & best to filter it first. I know the people so I don't think they are just blowing smoke? Using some from a cars oil change, is way different than burning it 50/50 every day. Also the older diesels are probably ok, the new fuel pumps & emissions probably won't like it.
