I always worry about being tired and grabbing the wrong handle. Especially at the stations that have a diesel nozzle on the same pump as the unleaded nozzle. I try to always look at the nozzle before I stick it into the tank and make sure its the big one.
Anyone ever use peanut oil in the diesel?
I just recycled a 5 gallon container of used turkey oil and had always wondered if I could have just burned it in the tank.
i haven't done that but have 5 gal here that i've been thinking of blending into my 40 gal tank 1 gal at a time. my only concern is the salt that may be in oil from frying the turkey. i have given thought to shaking up abt 10% water with it to disolve the salt then let the water settle out over a week or so. the salt will go out with the water. the removal of the water is the only problem i'm concerned abt. (we washed crude oil with water to remove the salt).
a couple of thought abt the stations, i haven't had a problem either except the common one of trying to pick out the diesel pump while pulling off the road.
on carrying extra diesel, i've wresled with this one. i'm afraid that i will know that i have that extra and push too far(looking to save that extra penny) then not be able to find diesel.
if ur new to diesel engines, follow the recomendatons for radiator maintaince closely. there is an addative that goes in there (sometimes contained in the antifreeze but u have to make sure) that stops or reduces cavitation within the engine cooling system. you can get a better answer than i can give on this from a diesel mechanic. cavatition is the producing of a bubble then it callopses. when it callopses, it sounds like gravel flowing and chipps metal. i never heard it on mine so it may not be that noticable. i have experienced the engine failoure from it (pin hole leak in the cyclender wall between combustion chamber and water jacket).
