I would suggest that it's not wise to mix oil with fuel. I am surprised the injectors aren't blocked!

its ran the last 5k miles on oil mixed with fuel. any waste oil is filtered down to 1 micron first. i was advised a while ago to put some engine/gear oil in the fuel to lube the injector pump.
fuel filters get blocked quite often tho :(

the above is also breaking the law unless u declare it and are paying tax on the mileage covered

Your injectors will one day go kaput alOng with your pump. Neither are cheap to replace.

If you are to get stopped with anything than white diesel or chip fat, ypu will get asked to go to a vosa station and have your tank drained and the fuel annalized. Whatever they feel should be taxed on they will! If you have no receipts for normal derv and no history of the miles covered they WILL take you to court!
