kingsway when you fry your fish and chips do you have to count the excess grease that may end up in your tank? How do they know how many liters you put in your vehicle?

You can always make a pyrolysis stove for worn out car tires and use the oil as diesel.

Or if you want clean diesel without creating massive sulphur stink do the same with styrofoam and #4/#5 plastic.

strangely enough, I invented M85, or at least the latest version of it and the process to do it.

Pretty easy.
Take 40 gallons of used motor oil or used ATF.
add 6 gallons of gasoline.
mix thoroughly.

filter through 5 micron filter, and run it in your truck.

we've got probably half million miles on ford 7.3's, a lot on dodge 12 valves, some dodge 24 valves.

not recommended for common rail or anything with a cat.

some people are all worried about the "dirt" in the oil.

Strange they will run dirty engine oil in their crank case, but won't run it to burn it.
Also, the black in oil is carbon.
Carbon burns quite well.
Coal. Soot. etc.

Yeah but my 6.2 would probably have trouble burning a 50/50 mix of M85 and diesel, maybe with 2 tanks it could handle it.

the 6.2's run great on it. we ran it straight

. the later 6.5's (95 and later????) have an optical sensor in the injector pump which means they can't run it at all.

Run great at what temperature, with what lift pump/injection pump and for how long?

This goes against 5 years of WMO experiences of other users.

From what I read WMO when used at greater than 50% in a 6.2 causes the injectors to crud up from time to time.

I know this to be the case so how or what have you done to avoid this?

if your injectors are crudding up, then you have huge problems with obnoxious smoke at startup and at idle.

15 percent RUG, and absolutely NO gear oil. When you get the mix right, you get just a touch of abnormal smoke at startup, but then everything runs fine.

Also, if you run no RUG, when the injectors "crud up" the fix is to remove the injectors, clean out the hole, and reinstall them. usually about a 2 hour project the first time you do it.

Keep in mind, we are dropping the fuel cost from 4.50 a gallon to something like 55 cents with the w85.
