If it is water sludge then put cheap oil in and drive it 200k then put your good oil in. The left over water should have vaporised by then.

if she is really sludgey be carefull mate, cos it can block the pickup in the sump and run your motor dry, why not lift up the motor a bit with a engine crane drop the sump off and give it a good clean, then you know the job is done properly, i have heard of people using desiel to flush motors but i recon that it would swell the rubbers and seals, desiel is filthly sticky s**t anyways not something i would put in my engines.

Kero does the job and is also a good lifter cleaner!
