FYI - the old wisdom is going to change in the next few days. 2007 engines will not be permitted  to burn used oil as fuel.

2007 Volvo 780 here, with a 2006 Cummins ISX 530HP. I think she will eat just about anything. ;)

NO, its any engine with a particular set of components, the most important to the used oil issue being a particulate filter, some of which were produced and shipped during the 4th quater of 2006 and are defined under law as 2007 engines.

But Leo, don't all diesel engines manufactured after 12/31/06 have to come with those components ???

Yes but he said manufactured after 12-31-06 and I was pointing out that some of them have all ready been built and shipped in fourth quarter of 06 and under EPA regulations are certified as 2007 engines i.e they contain new reduced NOx equipment and particulate filters plus other items. The used fuel oil can not be put in them.
