my dad used a used oil to protect the wood from wood eating bugs.

I'm not sure which is worse, burning it in the combustion chamber of a Toyota or pouring it on the ground and then light it on fire.

hey, i'm not looking to create the best videos ever with too much talking, just go straight to the point. i'm only giving people some info and decide for themselves what works for them. this is just what i like doing for the sake of science and education. when you are in a situation where disposing a used oil is impossible, one quart every other fill up would be okay.

as of rightnow, my 6 quarts of used oil are all gone and my 4runner seems not to mind it. just saying, it will be fine. in the end, you guys still decide on your own what you believe in.

it's worse if you pour it on the ground and light it since it does not go through the catalytic converter to clean the air. you know how much black smoke it makes. if it's through the engine, it gets burned better through the catalytic converter.

we do. that's what i used to do before. a long time ago, others said, the world is flat, then they tried to reach the end of it and failed. there are a lot of impossible things other people believe in and in the end it was true. same here with burning oil on the engine that may be impossible but i think is possible if you do it right. our engines burn oil anyway going past the oil ring, i'm just helping it burn some more.

& common sense says you dont put used oil in your gas tank.... & doing so doesnt make it like a 2 stroke!

& the whole engines burn oil past the rings "logic" makes zero sense... the amount of oil burnt that passes rings on a healthy engine is probably equal to a few teaspoons every oil change, not 1 qt every other fill up. where is the "science" to support doing that?

just take your used oil to jiffy lube, auto zone or walmart to dispose of it & quit telling people to do something like this that can & eventually will harm the engine or other parts & sensors.

youre laziness doesnt justify the stupidity of adding a qt of used (or new) oil to the gas tank.
