running waste oil in a 2 stroke diesel (detroit v6 2 stroke)

Postby mans » Thu Apr 18, 2013 9:27 pm

Hello all.
I've searched high and low for any info about burning waste oil in a 2 stroke diesel of any kind and I can find none.

I see tons and tons of experienced folks running anything from WMO to WVO to trans fluid in 4 stroke diesels, but I cannot find any info about using waste oil in a 2 stroke diesel.

the engine at hand is a 2 stroke detroit v6, I'd like to know if waste oil can be put in the tank safely.

There are many threads I have seen by people who are running on those on WVO. The same issues apply to running it on WVO as most other diesels, the only added one is don't idle for more than a few minutes. No one I know running on WMO, probably because its much harder to run without really stinky smoke and damage following. Here are some threads I get just from this forum by putting detroit into the search box at the top:
