Default Mixing diesel with SVO before filtration.

Have any of you guys tried mixing diesel with you WVO before you filter it?
I have been experimenting with this for a few months, first as a matter of convienence but when I noticed how well the oil seperates from the glycerides I keep it up and have a table full of test jars letting specific gravity and the heat of summer do the trick. It sure drops the viscosity a bunch and the wvo never seperates from the diesel.

I did similar experimentation...they will separate at colder temps. Put one of your jars in the fridge for a few days and see what happens.
I never did use it to help filter though.

It seems like it would speed dewatering too . The main downside I see is that after blending you no have to no longer have a natural biodegradable substable treat it all as hazmat diesel fuel with respect to spills , accidental ingestion. flamability etc) .
