I'm using 25 year old #2 stove oil in my tractor. Got about sixty -eighty gallons left. I pump it by hand through an inline filter from a 55 gal drum. I just add a half can of SEAFOAM per tankful for lubricity. So far no problems.


Most peoples' lives pass them by while they're making grand plans for it.

Depending where you're at someone with a waste oil heater would be able to use it.

Use it to light off old tires on Earth Day. Makes for a great conversation starter with the lefty neighbors.

I'd burn it in my old 7.3 Ford truck. I've burned used motor, hydraulic and transmission oil for years and will continue to when fuel gets high again.

Had an acquaintance with an original Power Stroke. He always added a quart of ATF to each fill up. Claimed lubricity improvement. Not sure of the mileage, however, he drove the truck a long time... Certainly did not hurt anything...

@OP, If you filter it properly, can not see where off-blending it with fresh fuel would hurt anything...

You guys that burn that dirty, watery fuel in your expensive diesel engines amaze me.

I've seen some trouble and damage due to condensation build up, and rust in old fuel tanks. Clogs fuel filters, transfer tank filters, and messes up engines, making them an expensive fix.

Guess I go the other way on that stuff...

When I get done with my diesel machinery for the day, I always fill the tank all the way full before parking it for the night. A partially empty tank can get condensation over night in the air space. Thus that water may pass through the filter and cause expensive repairs down the road.

Old oil and outdated, possibly corrupted fuel gets saved to use on burning the brush piles.

Take a cotton t shirt or button down and filter it.

The water wont go through the shirt.

Anything else will be caught by the filter.

Run it in an old machine or hot water washer.

Even clean diesel won't work well in a snowmachine engine.

Don't ask.... smile

Fuel can be scrubbed. In our coastal communities, businesses exist which will filter old fuel sitting in boat tanks. Can't help but believe there is not plenty of need for this inland as well.

Beats the hell out of pouring it out on the ground and eventually into the water supply and some are advocating.
