    Re: Use for bio waste?

    The point is 2 kg of sugar in a 6 cubic metre truck load of concrete is enough to stop it from setting. So if you think 20 litres of byproduct would have no effect, then maybe you need to rethink it.

    Re: 5W50 or 10w50 or 20W50

    I would not want to be counting on that alone. Oil in the pump= slippery + lots of back pressure ???? Might just be enough to make the pump spin backwards and you lose oil pressure.
