Re: Can I run waste peanut oil??
From what I have gathered, peanut oil is great. Filtraton is a must but any waste vegetable oil needs to be heated if it is to be used straight.
Some guys are adding WVO to their diesel with success. But, as outside temps cool, that percentage must decrease. Its all about flow rates. Colder veggie, regardless of the level of filtration, moves more and more like syrup. Diluting with regular diesel helps but at some point the lines and filters will get clogged unless heat is added.
Congratulations on securing some good peanut oil. You're on your way!
