    When me and my wife first got married, she had a VW Rabbit Diesel. She moved to NC about a month before me, so I was driving this car about 200 miles one way on the weekends. My parents switched from oil heat to a heat pump for their heat, to I would add a quart of motor oil to my tank and pump the heating oil from their tank into the Rabbit. I would get 49 miles to the gallon with a top speed on a flat surface of 70 mph.

    When I owned a Saturn, I was thinking of suggesting to GM that they should get the government to classify motor oil as an alternative fuel. :(

    Home heating oil doesn't provide enough top end lubricant, so adding a quart of motor oil to the home heating fuel made it a very clean deisel with a little more kick. This was advice from a diesel mechanic and it worked.
