Half Price for Diesel Fuel - How??
Presently we pay about half price for each gallon of fuel consumed because our trucks run on half diesel and half recycled oil/used transmission fluid. All it takes is some really good filtering of the used oil and a specially manufactured processor.
Our family has two diesel trucks now and when the fuel disaster hit, we were very empathetic with other diesel owners that did not find out what we discovered almost two years ago. You see, we power our diesels with an alternative fuel that combines used motor oil, transmission fluid and the like with some diesel.

The concoction is not hard to make. All it takes is some really good filtering of the used oil and a specially manufactured processor. I know, the processor must not be anything special, right? Wrong!
The processor is truly more important than the filtering. You see, it's not just any old processor; it has special beads that draw out all the detrimental residue left behind by filtering. Even a 1 micron filter media doesn't get it all. It is the SPECIAL BEAD POD that takes out the antifreeze, paraffin, water droplets and other contaminants and render the used oil safe for your expensive diesel engine. The bead pod comes with the processors and that is the only way we have found to get them. It's these special beads that really shield your engine from expensive repairs and maybe even failure.
A well maintained diesel vehicle will go on many times longer than a gasoline engine. We also have a 1983 Mercedes diesel that has 271,000+ miles and it's still going solid. How many gasoline engines do you know of with that kind of mileage and still run well? We haven't started using the alternative fuel in this one but intend to do so soon. We haven't had it long enough to trick it out yet.This will be my commuter ride.
Our family hunts extensively from August - October almost every year. Last year we only had one diesel truck and could see the savings on fuel during hunting season. This year we will have two trucks using the alternative fuel and it will more than double our savings.
Think about it, Diesel fuel at $4.00/gallon, consuming about 30 gallons per round trip to the hunting place. That's $120.00 per trip, per vehicle. Our trucks use about a 50/50 mix of the alternative fuel with no recognizable change in performance. We ordinarily make at least 6 trips during a hunting season to stock up on staples, do the laundry and pay the bills. $2.00 X 30 gallons X 6 trips = $360.00 VS $720.00 at $4.00 per gallon. It takes no time to pay for the special processor.
We have heard a few people say they run 80% oil to 20% diesel without any problems. It all depends on what your ride likes. At an 80/20 mix, you recapture your cost even more quickly.
We thought about biodiesel but as we researched, we realized there are numerous damaging aspects of biodiesel. There is the byproduct trash to dispose of, there are expensive chemicals to add and the dangers are way more than we wanted to get into.
Besides, I understand the making of biodiesel smells really foul. Our processing doesn't have any smell at all other the normal smells the components give off ... Diesel, oil, transmission fluid. The only waste that I may have is a small amount of water or condensation that settles to the bottom of my oil drums over time. That is easily drained out and left at one of the oil recycle centers.
I really don't know of any negative aspects to the processor we use to combine the diesel fuel with used oil. My husband taught me to do it in about 15 minutes. The training consisted of fill the processor to here with the oil and filter it as you put it in. Add diesel to this mark. Mix it up and pump it in. Nothing to it!
I advise you check out the link below to see what a fantastic deal this is and next time the price of fuel skyrockets, you can sit back and grin, just like we did.
