Question WVO users; What's your source???

Some using straight WVO, and some on blends....

I',m on blend with RUG......and thought it would be cool to hear where people are getting their WVO from since some have trouble finding good ones....

I found Japaneese Sushi restaurants have clean WVO and only fry tempuras and some fish....

Austin85,

What percentage of RUG do you mix with the WVO?

How much RUG would you have to mix with WVO to get the same viscosity as #2 Diesel fuel?

Thumbs up

1:4 or 1:5 is OK too while it's warm there...
plus I add 2oz of acetone and 2oz of diesel cetane boost for every 5 gallons.....
mix 'em up then add to tank.

get good oil and pre-filter....

Do you find a viscocity difference between acetone in the mix and no acetone in the mix?

I'm pretty sure it's for keeping the blend to run cleaner.
I got this mix from Matt300SD here.
It was 5.95 at Home Depot.
