update- i have drove almost 400 miles burning mostly W80. At night when i come home, i switch the truck to diesel a mile or so before the house. Then in the mornings i let it warm up on diesel and i switch it to my rear tank of W80 when i start to get heat in the cab. If the truck is going to sit longer than 6 hours, i switch it over to diesel which is in the front tank, and let it shut down/ warm up on D2. It has been been dropping to about 30 degrees at nights here lately.
changes/differences - NOT Much! the engine is quieter when running the w80, and it turns my exhaust a slight grayish tint. There is no smoke, or smell when the truck is at operating temp, and the only time it smokes is when the truck is still cold. When it smokes the smoke is blueish, and about like a gas engine burning oil, except it does not smell as bad.
I filled my truck up today and it seems like i clogged one of my filters. because it was flowing so slowly. I have ran about 50 gallon through them so far. Both batches have sat, blended with rug for 3 days and then ran through the filters into the truck. The first batch i agitated after i poured it. But this second batch, i just poured the oil in, then poured the gas in, with no agitation. When it came out it was still nice and thin, but maybe it took a day or more for the gas to blend with the oil and the settling time was not long enough for the junk to fall to the bottom. I am going to get a vacuum pump and try to back flush the filters sometime this week and see if that will increase the flow.
