I have heard of trucking companies mixing waste oil in their fuel @ 1%.

Supposedly to much waste oil (or straight veg oil) will cause buildup on the rings, valves, and injector tips. Also as mentioned some pumps are sensitive to viscosity.

All the common rail are sensitives, and the rotary pumps made by Delphi-Lucas.
The Bosch PE (lineal) and the rotary VE runs perfect.
The Bosch VP 44 is to much sensitive to fuel viscosity, runs ok but makes excessive hot.
You can mix @ 3-5%, no issues.

my dad did it during the late 80s- early 90s when he maintained a ~40 truck fleet. The drivers hated it because they always had to carry a spare fuel filter with them just in case.. Unsure of the actual dilution ratio though..

I've always wanted to get an old mech. injection diesel and run waste oil in it!

Up here, truck drivers are pretty used to carrying spare fuel filters. When they gel up, first thing you have to do is change the filter!

See sig, I run 70-100% WMO/Transmission oil/Hydraulic oil and jet fuel all the time.

If you filter and prep it properly, then the risks are reduced. Sure, you will have to clean injectors at some point but big deal. I average 30 gallons a week and have done so since November and haven't touched her except to change the oil, which I reused, hehehehe. I also put a cleaner in the tank every other fill and run an additive every fill.

People do run it in newer diesels but IDI diesels will take anything you can throw at them and are cheaper to fix/maintain.
