Posted 14th Apr
Clear decking oil to treat softwood, 20l container covering approx 4.5 sq/m per litre.

Just ordered to re do my fence this year and sleepers, I used a cheaper brand last year at 20 per 5l so a decent saving if someone has. Bit of timber to oil! Gets great reviews too

Thanks been paying £25:00 / 5 ltr for this so half price for me.
Can dye be added
I just changed the oil in my car and used the old engine oil to do my fence and came out great.
Powerwashed it first, let it dry for a couple of sunny days, then brushed it on with a big cheap brush from Wilkos.
+1 used engine oil for shed and fences.

This must be a very bad joke or troll !!!???

Very bad idea !!!

All the Toxic and/or carcinogenic byproducts in the engine oil and you are painting your fence with it, which is then washed off with rain contaminating the soil, pathways, drive etc.
Just the sort of thing you want your children or pets to be in contact with, even if you do not care about yourself !!!


Quote below from motor.com/mag…000

What Contaminates Oil? As efficient as modern engines are, the heat they generate still has a deleterious effect on motor oil. Heat causes a breakdown of additives and other key properties of oil. This breakdown creates acids and other contaminants such as dirt, dust and even rust, which make their way into the crankcase, along with small amounts of water and antifreeze. Add to this exhaust gases that leak past piston rings and you have contaminated oil that contains quantities of cadmium, aluminum, lead, steel, iron and chromium, along with scary-sounding arsenic and benzopyrene-real nasty stuff that you wouldn't want in your drinking water or in the fish you eat.

Nope. Is been great... and I love the shade of brown it gives with the wood grain and knots visible. Very happy with it.
I used that `Creocote` (fake Creosote) on a different section of fence. The engine oil is much better looking and performing.
I will use the engine oil every time from now on.

But waste engine oil causes cancer, this is not a big secret? There's nothing to stop you slopping it all over your fence to get that nice brown colour and save yourself £10, except on a hot day you are also going to be breathing in all the volatile components. Although I wonder if DEFRA might be interested in someone deliberately contaminating their neighbours soil.

I think we can class this practice as the same thinking that opposes childhood vaccination,
eventually the problem solves itself...
Thanks op, saw an advertisement for half price wood treatments at Wickes on the TV, thought I'd check hukd first before venturing out tomorrow, twice as much for the same price I was going to pay at Wickes cheers

Any tips on applying this to new decking?.

I've seen people on here have used a large soft sweeping brush and paint tray to just sweep/brush it on, Anyone tried this method?

I previously have used a soft brush and paint tray for decking and also used a 5l garden sprayer for my shed and fences and both worked fine. Sprayer a lot quicker method but will use more oil per SQ/M .....just depends if you have the time to brush

Well it would have to be a REALLY hot day as engine oil doesnt even begin to break down until it reaches way over 100`c...
and all of the oil is soaked into the cleaned and dried wood, none of it seeps out even in the heaviest rain.

That's the wrong metric, they measure the vapor pressure of oil from 20degC.

You can't really smell new motor oil, but alkylbenzenes, naphthalene, and methylnaphthalenes are present in the waste oil.
Stuff like polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) only exists in used motor oil, that's the bit that's most toxic. The "aromatic" bit means you can smell it. The warmer the day, the more is released

It's the same process for creosote, on a hot day the old railway sleepers smell.
What do you think is responsible for killing off all the plants around them? That's why they tell you not to make raised beds out of the old logs, they are full of carcinogenic Benz(a)anthracene, (also present in the lungs of soon to be dead smokers)

As for "none of it seeps out", just lol, go dip your butchers block in it then

If you don't already know why this is stupid and irresponsible, then further debating the point is somewhat pointless?

I am not debating anything mate, I am making a statement: "The engine oil is doing a great job of preserving my fence, much better than the `Creocote` and I am happy with it." If you dont like it then dont do it.
