Asked April 7, 2017, 11:52 PM EDT

Dear sir, Am a student of hydraulic mechanism. Am writing my project on reclaim base oil and hydraulic additives. Please while browsing on internet, I saw your website. Pls, I have an academic question that I wish to ask you for my thesis. (1) A diesel fuel that is washed or treated with boiling temperature and small percentage of sulfuric acid and Bleaching Earth to remove the colorant and its additives then neutralise the recovered base oil with lime (alkaline) (2) Can the above recovered base oil be added hydraulic additives to make it a hydraulic oil ? That is, converting diesel oil to hydraulic oil. pls contact at my email Thanks Jeff
