After 6 months a prep, including gathering 600 gallons of excellent veggie oil (titration 2-3 and absent of water), the processor delivered was so poorly made we sent it back.

Can I straight mix the SVO at say 50% (SVO and diesel) if:

1. It is filtered down to 3 microns
2. Has been tested for absence of water.

I would like to just run a mix as long as it is above 75 or 89 degrees. I understand some people mix the oil with kerosene to reduce the viscosity.

What percentage would be OK to run without setting up a complete SVO system?

I have run a lot of WVO through my rig. It doesn't like to drink more than 25% WMO in the blend. I don't have heat on this rig though.
