The thought had crossed my mind, but I did not know if the Bosch water recirc pump that I am using, would work with the heavier oil. Plus, using some low pressure fittings, if I did end up getting a leak, I did not want it near the exhaust W/G's , etc.
But, I think that the oil would work a lot better for heat transfer and not boiling over.

Also, Spenny I did not think about the water cooling circuit in the W/G's. I never had a problem with them overheating.... Hmm, now you have me thinking
