Blending with heat?
Iv been doing alot of reading and have plenty more to do but i would like to convert my obs to run a filterd, heated wvo/kero blend in the rear tank ( or aux tank if and when poly becoms a problem). The way i was going to run the system was to start on #2 from front tank, while running #2 to warm the truck i would have 2 electric inline fuel heaters and a hot fox in the wvo/blend tank to warm things up. 3 Inline temp gaudges at different points of the fuel system would give me the fuel temps. This is a rough idea i had that needs refining, but the whole idea would be that the kero in the wvo/kero blend would be 20/80, 50/50, and 80/20 depending on outdoor temp, and would reduce the viscosity also the added heat would insure good fuel temps around 100* befor it gets to the fuel bowl. i feel the added kero would allow lower temps into the heads but i dont know of any formulas to figur out exactly how the added % of kero will effect the burn to temp ratio of the blend. I know 160* is were u want to be with 100% wvo befor heads????
finally i would purg on d2..
Any body try a converstion like this??
