Has anyone burned Mercon V or gear oil?

I have a centrifuge and pump setup to remove all the particulate and most water. Has anyone burned Mercon V transmission fluid(synthetic) or gear oil yet?

I have used ATF (Mercon V, sepcifically) in small amounts in my fuel. Hasn't had any ill effects that I have noticed. Doesn't blend well with SVO though...
