Waste vegetable oil in a 3rd gen cummins????

I know there are probably many threads on this but i dont have the time to look. I have a few questions:

Truck is the one in my sig.
1. Can i run veg. oil mixed with diesel in this truck without a tank heater and any problems?
2. What would have to be done to the oil to run it other than filtering?
3. How will this affect my warrenty?
4. Is it possible to run straight veg. oil?

07 2500 5.9 4x4, automatic, diablosport powerpuck, gutted stock intake with K&N filter, 2" leveling kit and i dont kno where that dang silencer ring went. More to come... Exhaust, CFM+, Predator stack, tires and wheels when the money permits

When you get done powerstrokin your duramax only the best is left CUMMINS

1. Probably not
2. separation application, generally involves methanol.
3. It'll kill it if they find out. ....look for injector problems.
4. yes and no.......depends on the blend/weight and other factors.

1. No, I would not do that.
2.Filter it down to 10 microns atleast, and dewater it.
3.It would void it I am sure.
4. Yes! www.goldenfuelsystems.com www.frybird.com
