vegistroke.com has what I'm gonna put in mine. I like how it uses 2 separate fuel systems all the way up to the heads instead of using the same lines back to the tanks, having to purge the lines a couple miles before you shut the truck off.

I like the sound of that I'll have to check this out. The only one I know of is the greasecar system where the same fuel line is used.

Only thing I want to warn all WVO users of. Filter your oil, and make 150% sure it is dry! I got a tank of WVO with water in it, and it made short order of my IP.

IMO, it is better to buy or make your own bio processor, which converts WVO to biodiesel. Most of these will have some sort of dryer built in or if you build your own, most sites with free instructions will tell you how to make a drying system.

If you go the route of straight WVO or a 50/50 mix, make sure it is clean and dry, a good 2 micron filter setup added to your oem filter would be a great idea. Just my 0.01 cents,

He isn't kidding, I lost a lift pump running the same oil out of the same barrels. Its all good and well untill she dies on ya on the side of the road. If you would like to see the difference between real fuel and well filtered WVO then pour equal amounts into some semi clear containers and let them set for a week. The scum that settles in the bottom of the WVO one is fat and glycerin, this is not smart to run through an IP or an injetor, clean it and dry it and bubble wash it --- that is smart --- but do what you want, all i know is that just filtered and mixed WVO is not good for a diesel engine.

Curious how far( micron ) you filtered the oil to?
I understand removing 110% of the water from the oil. Were contaminants other than water to blame also?

Thanks

I would filter down as far as humanly possible. I run a custom built/installed 2 micron filter on my truck. Its basically a CAT 2 micron made by WIX/NAPA.

Run that secondary filter, and you should be good to go with a decent stand alone filter for something like farm fuel for your mixing setup.
