WMO/ATF/Synthetic/W85 Questions

4006 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  dieseldonn
I'm going to start running W85 in my truck in the next few weeks as soon as all my supplies get ordered/shipped and I can do my first filtration. I'm going to go with a pabiodieselsupply 120gph centrifuge setup for my 2000 PSD. With the centrifuge, it will be extremely clean at .5 microns. My source of fuel will be a mixture of synthetic/non synthetic WMO & ATF.

Here are my questions:

1.)Can I just start running W85 immediately or do I need to wean the truck onto a W85 mixture?

2.) If I run out for whatever reason, can I immediately switch back to a few tanks of straight D2 on occasion?

3.) Is there any problem with running large amounts of synthetic?

4.)Any problem running a random mixture of WMO & ATF with 15% UG?

5.) Any problems with dumping a mixture of W85 into a tank half full of straight D2?

Hello you should start with no more then a 50/50 mix. You can mix it in with diesel or use diesel whenever you want. I don't know much about burning synthetic oils. Because all the oils i have are petro oils. Remember a couple of key facts.
1) Filter oil/mix really really good
2) Make sure there is no water in the oil.

Good Luck
That centrifuge from PA Biodiesel should work well for you. And customer service is great. Joe is a really great guy. You should have no worries about running the oil that you clean with this centrifuge.
