Default WVO Diesel Mixture

90,000 miles and no PM= CV/PV/and Pump all hitting the floor at the same time.
Got everything freed up, and flowing.

Now my only issue is a Secondary Tank full of 20 gallon WVO and 40 gallon Diesel.

I'm not sure what to do, I've turned the heat off to the tank, but I need to either run it out or pump it out. (it's 5*F here right now)

I'm considering putting a remote BBQ thermometer in thank and reading in the cab, I would be looking for around 80-100*f to keep the D2/WVO mixture not to hot, and not too cold?

Any suggestions to running this mixture or would you recommend pumping it out?

I doesn't hurt a thing to heat diesel VO mix, run it just like you have straight VO in the tank.

The only thing I would worry about on that 6.0 is keeping your fuel pressure up when running a thinner mixture of fuel.

If your pumps up to it go for it.

I often add some diesel to the veg tank in the winter months. It makes for a much quicker "veg on" time when it's really cold.
