In the latest adventure with the master of destruction, Mastermilo82, and his resilient Hyundai Tiburon, the seemingly indestructible car faces a peculiar challenge.

The daring Dutchman, known for pushing boundaries, explores the consequences of substituting regular cooking oil for conventional engine oil.

Although the question may not have crossed your mind before, Mastermilo82 dives into this unconventional experiment with his trusty coupe.




Before embarking on this unorthodox journey, some necessary repairs are in order. Welding a damaged oil pan and inspecting the valve cover for potential internal damage become crucial preparations.

Once the stage is set, the 1.6-liter engine is filled with used cooking oil straight from a deep fryer.

Surprisingly, the engine's initial roar isn't as dreadful as expected, given its history of enduring harsh conditions. However, as the unconventional oil circulates, peculiar and somewhat alarming gulping sounds emanate from the engine.

Only one cylinder fires, expressing clear dissatisfaction with its newfound lubricant.
