Any body tried using motor oil blending in diesel fuel?

Instead of using WVO, any body tried motor oil (new) blending in diesel fuel?
At Auto Zone store, I saw some unknown brand motor oil cost 49 cents a quart with mail-in rebate.

Steve - There are people on this board doing this already. Also, many truck fleets mix up to 5% drain oil to their diesel fuel. Do a search.

Hey,
5% per 20 gallon tank = 1 gallon.

At 49c per quart a gallon costs $1.96. How much are you really saving? 50c per fillup maybe??


P.S. While your researching the oil subject you may want to search for Cannola Oil too.
Then you can go to the USER CP and add your vehicle information and location into your profile.

Yeah good idea. You can save $5.00 pe rfillup. Then you can spend $500 on a new Injection Pump and $4,000 on a new engine.

DO A SEARCH!!! That's what the SEARCH button is there for!
