    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    What happens when I burn Gingelly oil, which was already fried?

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    Actually this is not a homework question. This is just my curiosity. I don't want to experiment it at my home if it is explosive or may release Carbon mono oxide.

    There is no important difference between used and fresh oil when it comes to burning it. Used one can be more smelly.

    What causes that smell? It must be chemically altered some where. Where is it?

    You mean Acrolein is released when fried oil is burnt?

    PS: Sorry I was inactive for a long time.

    Have you read the linked article? Actually just a third phrase will do.
