Tryed running your 6.2 on used engine oil ??

I ran my old car, a Nissan diesel , for over a year on a 50/50 mix of used oils and Diesel. It ran just fine and still does.

Anyone got some experience of running 6.2 on this kind of "fuel" ?

( Fuel is VERY expensive in Sweden )

id filter it to 5 or even 2 micron and maybe let it settle to see if theres any antifreeze in it or if its your oil then you should be alright.

depending on weather....it may be too thick at cooler temps, that could damage the ip. Id keep the 50/50 or more of diesel in the mix.

Make sure you put a magnet on the fuel filter housing.

( Fuel is VERY expensive in Sweden )

on the ford 7.3 idi forum someone was talking about a guy in finland who had 300,000 miles on his truck and it ran on a blend of motor oil and gas since he bought it new. I can't confirm the truth of this but if you want i can give you a link to that forum and you could ask around.
basically, the gasoline will thin the motor oil much better than diesel. You could start with a blend of 10% gas and 90% motor oil, mix in a jar and see how thin it looks in the cold weather. If it still looks thick try adding increments of 5%.
as long as you filter very well you should not have IP problems - and of course, don't add too much gas...

i have about 40K miles on veg oil on my 6.2 and if i did not have veg oil available i would definitely be running a blend of gas and motor oil.
good luck,
paul

Over on the Biodiesel and SVO forum site there is a forum specifically on blending. It is more aimed at the WVO crowd but they often talk about blending WMO.

Good Day,
