    not modern hydraulic oils...

    the exhaust gasses would be toxic.

The oil comes out looking as clean as it went in, has spent its life going thru clutch packs and then large hydraulic filters....
    Quite a bit on this on the net. Hydraulic oil supposed to be the best oil to use. Takes less cleaning.
    Filter it , chuck in a bit of ULP and put it in your tank. So I have read anyway.
    ATF is supposed to be just as good but hard to get from the Auto trans shops.

    Petrol exhaust gases are toxic anyway so is toxic diesel exhaust a problem?

    depends on the exact hydraulic oil.

    just like engine oil theres more than one type, some of the additive packages are where the problems lie, not so much the base oil itself.

    remember how super petrol is bad but ULP is ok?

    same deal.

    Just a thought, has anyone done an accurate calculation or have any figures on the cost savings? If that's the main objective. My line of thought is that the diesel in the tank is supplemented with a percentage of WVO or some other waste oil Yes? So then an additional filtration system is purchased or manufactured for use at home, Then the WVO or similar is procured processed, filtered and stored for use.


    Is the savings worth all the effort and additional costs recouped in a timely manner?


    Not being critical here so please educate the fridgy if I am missing something, if it is done for the reason of "because we can" then yes I am all for that but just seems to me that maybe a lot of additional costs/effort for a small savings.


    Again, am I missing something?

    How about "saving" the environment as a factor to add into any calculations ? Some would say it is just a "feel good" factor, but nevertheless it is a big part of why some people, myself included, use bio-diesel.

    How about this I was reading in an old farming book how to clean sump oil.....dip a (I`m assuming by the books age) non synthetic rope in a high can and allow it to wick to a low can using the rope as a filter......Sounds too good to be true. My upflow filtration of WVO doesn`t work for sump oil (its still black after a year in a black can in the sun but admittedly a bit lumpier at the bottom) but how about a jackmaster dunny roll filter, they claim 0.5 micron filtration. You need a pump though
