If you plan on just filtering the stuff & dumping it in your tank, it will fail soon.

If you are lucky & get the right variety of oil, dewater it, preheat it properly, only use it on long runs with the engine warm, and keep your fingers crossed, there is a small chance that your motor may last maybe 1/2 as long as running diesel.

Eventually many of the hippies on the WVO forums tune in here once their motors are in trouble. Search on stuck rings for some more info on the damage.

If I could get onto a good reliable supply of clean waste atf, I may run that having trialed it successfully.

I use WVO in the wood heaters at home. You need to run straight wood & hot now and again to clean the chimney out.

You could make it into Bio diesel first & then use it.
