  • Diesel engine ran on sweet and sour crude oil. Previously tested running gasoline engine to run on sour crude oil, but not straight sweet crude oil. Also, thank you very much for supporting the channel by watching the commercials and through Patreon support.

    Never had any crude oil to try but I prime all my filters with AW32 hydraulic oil. I believe it to be good for the injectors especially on HEUI systems. They sure run smooth while they are drinking on it.

    Can you do a test on running a diesel engine with 2 stroke oil mixed into the tank please. Apparently it runs smoother and less wear etc

    How come you never tried testing crude oil as an engine oil. Especial the sour crude oil which had really good lubricity

    I'd like to see if you can run a diesel engine with a gas/oil mix. The old M35A2 deuce and a halfs had "multifuel" engines that ran primarily diesel and kerosene derivatives, but In theory could also run on gasoline (however it was recommended to add a quart of motor oil to the tank of you did that.

    So I wonder if a normal diesel engine could run on a gas/oil mix?

    I would like to see if a diesel engine would run normally on a gasoline and oil mix, like in two stroke engines. 20-1 mix low octane gasoline, and two stroke oil. The oil is as a substitute for the diesels lubricating effect.

    Maybe test the lubricity of adding the Diesel additives because of removing sulfur from our fuel. also the added anti-gel from adding the additives. One, in particular, I would like to see is adding 2 cycle oil to your Diesel fuel what it does for anti-gel and lubricity.but maybe add a few of the cheap to expensive from your local walmart in comparison even just the cheap synthetic 2 cycle oil from there.

    Crude oil varies greatly from well to well, soar crude oil simply means it has high H2S in it; it doesn't differentiate parifin, condesates, etc. Heck the same well will change in different types in any given day. But also make sure you filter the crude oil. The particulates will eventually destroy your high pressure pump and injector. However....when you smelled the sour crude oil it made me cringe. Cracking open the bottle of the soar stuff and taking a wiff can knock you out and burn your eyes. PLEASE don't get in contact with the smoke. When sulfur dioxide contacts water ie your eyes and lungs it turns to sulfuric acid. That's why wells that are soar have very high flame stacks. When pulling soar crude oil, filters don't work, special full face masks with air tanks had to be used as 100 ppm of H2S is enough to kill off your nerves in your nose ie lose sense of smell. So PLEASE PLEASE consider not using soar crude oil. I use to pull oil out in the bakan.

    How about heating oil in a diesel generator, a SHTF scenario.
