anti foam agent

Postby tubular031 » Sat Feb 14, 2009 12:12 pm

the place I get my oil from uses crisco fry shortining (PHO) and I remember reading on the lable that there is something in there that was used for anti foam. I did not use to worry since I was making BIO out of it and washed the junk out. Now I am burning SVO and am wondering if this additive will hurt my truck at all? its an 01 f350 7.3


EDIT: Its called Dimethylpolysiloxane. I forgot I had one of the jugs out side

I don't think anyone has done any studies of that additives effects for VO burning. Its added in such tiny amounts I doubt it would do anything. Its the other strange and widely varied things that are added and created during the frying process that I would be more concerned with. These haven't been studied either.

Do you know if your oil has that in it? i did some more reading and many seem to think its ok and will not hurt anything.

Yes much of my VO has that in it (when new) It might not have it anymore when its well used as I get it.
