Re: Adding Used Motor Oil to Diesel Fuel?

It would be foolish to leave it to future generations when it will shorten your own life and drastically reduce your quality of life.

East Siberian methane will probably indirectly kill us both and everyone else reading this within 10 years. Knowledge beats denial only in terms of preparing for a more comfortable end.

Peace.

Ha! Good luck with that.
