your best optioni s a centrifuge. simplecentrifuge.com or wvodesigns.com. youll apparently save some cash at the same time. no filters to mess with.

suppose it does, i missed that part.

yes there are different styles. the two i posted are gravity fed, no pump involved except for filling the dirty tank, and its probably easier to control the flow rate in the fuge. they sell turn key units but there will still be the assembly of your gravity feed device, so there is setup either way i guess.

yes, it helps a lot anyway. i dont recall on the simple cf, but the turnkey on wvodesigns comes with an inline adjustable heater.

For me WMO causes amnesia.

Must be from trauma.

so i like the centrifuge by wvo designs, and the gravity fed idea better, its cheaper and will do the same thing but without all the bells and crap i had looked at before. my question now is for the gravity fed set up is the a majic distace the oil has to travel before it goes into the centrifuge? to high and too much flow? or too low and not enough? thanks guys

distance? what ever distance you want honestly.

your flow is what is going to matter. WVO everyone generally goes fro 6 to 10 GPH. WMO seems people are satisified with no more than 6 GPH. but there are only one or two guys on here who fuge and run a WMO blend in a two tank system.
