AFAIK it's said about fresh motor oil too, but I remember some people resorted to used motor oil to treat scabies on dogs. I never tried it.

I made the smoke stack to the coal furnace much taller than code calls for.

Ok first batch of oily wood chips is soaking.
I have a big pile of wood chips in my field and I fill up a rolling municipal trash can I stole and park it next to my garage. I just dumped about 2 quarts of used motor oil on the wood chips once inside the trash can.
Ironically it's a green recycling bin with a big recycling symbol on it.

What that does is gets rid of used motor oil and allows me to fit an additional 50,000 to 80,000 BTUs of fuel in the coal furnace may slow down the rate at which the fire spreads through the wood chips. As the oil will have to cook off before the wood chip can become incandescent, which appears to be what spreads the fire.

Oh yeah it was a hell of a fire.
Easy way to get rid of what little used motor oil I produce.

As sawdust is often used to prevent an oil leak from spreading at the scene of an accident, soaking wood chips on oil seems reasonable.

I knew a mechanic that burned pure used oil, but then he had people bringing him more all the time.

I used to do that. Then I could roll diesel soot/motor oil sludge on other vehicles.

As some old 2-stroke cars could use SAE-40 oil whenever the proper 2-stroke oil was not available, maybe some "reclaimed" 4-stroke motor oil would work on 2-stroke gassers too. What about wood gas and old motor oil on a portable genset for instance?
