Hey Murph, sup dawg? Mineral oil burns great in my 03 7.3 stroke, they use it in transformers because of its particularly good anti corrosion performance. You might even notice the engine seems quieter and possibly more mpg.
You will hear some people harp on used transformer oil being toxic because of PCB contamination, that's pretty much a red herring, transformers have been PCB free for like 30 years. So yeah, if ya got it, smoke it.

Hey Fabricator! Nice to hear from you!

The mineral oil I'm getting is actually used as a parting agent by a commercial bakery so its definitely food grade and pcb free.. There's no taste, color or smell..

I'm going to run it in my 40hp Deere..

Thanks! And nice to see you in the forum.. With a 4 year old running around, I don't get a lot of time to do much anymore. Oh the good ol days..
