81 300td wvo and diesel & juicemaster ?s

Ok gents , I have a 81 td , 3k gal of wvo . I also have a Centrifuge from ebay on the way.

First question Can I just filter the WVO with a 5 micron filter and mix 50 /50 with diesel for summer use?
Second question or would I need to run in a centrifuge first

How did you get a hold of 3K (3000) gallons of WVO!! Even at 25 MPG that is enough WVO to go roughly 75,000 miles!! First question (if it is de-watered well) yes, should not have an issue.

Second. If it works properly, a centerfuge would most likely do better overall.

been saving it for a bit in my barn .
I converted a 88 f250 4x4 some time back then flywheel came apart . That is another story all together.
I did build a preheater for it using 2 inch rigid copper and 3/8 soft copper tubrig .
