So I ran over to oilburners and signed up, but I can't seem to access any of the forums, im not sure whats going on.
Design Plans so far:
So I need to decide what kinda fuel lines to use. My primary fuel will be WVO, but I would like to be able to run BD as well. I want TIH. I think I am going to use Good Year J30R7 (vitron lined), and standard radiator hose around that. But I have no idea what kind of diameters I need, the J30R7 has a 3 layer construction and a decent wall thickness. But maybe I should just forget about the BD entirely and go with Steel or Aluminum with compression fittings. HELP, What should I do!?
Because I still have no idea what kinda of fuel lines to use so i havent done any research on fittings or connectors yet. However in my design so far I know I will need:
1 - Electric 3 Port Valve
1 - Pressure and Temperature Gauge
3 - TEE's
3 - Manual Shut Off Valves
Before the IP I plan on placing a Inline Crap Catcher, Temperature & Pressure Sensors. I'm assuming Ill have to change from a Steel to rubber line to make this possible, no?
RKPATT: In another thread I read that you placeda TEE in the same line before the Crap Catcher, whats the point of this?
The WVO Filter and Pump shown in the sketch are down the road imporvements so I have done no resaearch on them yet. For now it will just be insulated fuel line all the way to the TEE for the tanks.
Which I am still unsure long system. Will it even have any heat left by the time it makes it thorugh the coil in the second tank? Is their a way I can heat my tanks electrically off of 12v? Can I re-wire a hot water heater element to accomplish this, how can I make sure to maintain proper oil temp (160f?)
I am going to run both my diesel and WVO through my FPHE with a shutoff valve to shut down the FPHE for extended diesel driving. Also, the line which returns fuel to the tank to maintin proper pressure I am going to re-introduce into the system with a TEE right before my FPHE. This should take care of worrying which tank which fuel is returning too, and should provide some inlet pressure to the DB@ Fuel Pump, i think...
OH; PS: does anyone know where the 3 port valve for the diesel tanks is located?
