New Guy Questions

Ok, new guy here. I've been reading a lot about a possible conversion for a 2005 6.0 PSD. I don't own the truck yet as I am still deciding between a couple of them. My question to you guys is this. What is the easiest way to do a full or partial convert to Wvo? I am not looking to not ever go to the station again but if that is possible it doesn't bad either. I don't currently have a source for wvo but I do have frito lay plant less than 30 minutes away that I was going to call but not sure if their oil is appropriate. as you can see I don't know much but I am trying to learn. Home filtration? In truck mixture? All questions. I live in Indiana so we do get cold here. Any all all opinions are welcome and I will keep educating myself. Thanks in advance.

First off your in the right place for answers. Welcome to the ORG.
You need to read ell the sticky treads all the way through. 85% of the answers to all of your questions are there. The another 10% is already covered. While the remaining 5% is yet to be asked, otherwise this forum wouldn't have any new threads.

If your getting a PSD (powerstroke diesel) anyway thats one thing, if your getting one to have free fuel, secure your oil sources now.

I'm 99% positive that Frito will have a contract with Darling (the walmart of wvo) or another company that is paying Frito for their oil.


Others will chime in soon

These guys are right on target. IMO, with a 6.0 that has much tighter tolerances on injectors you will want to filter with a centrifuge hands down. something all of us should be doing anyway.

secure your sources first. some areas are still overflowing with oil, others are drying up. be sure you can collect first. fwiw, when yo ask to collect and someone says yes, its best to give a date and start collecting if you are serious. if you tell them "here is what i am wanting to do" they will likely say no.

if you have a buddy at frito you might be able to get them to hold x gallons a week for you, but will probably want you to pay. from what i have seen, beating Darling's price isnt a challenge.

great advice from everyone. Please keep it coming. i am liking the vegiestroke system, not the price, but the system as I am not a gear head but know just enough to totally screw up a $14K+ motor. Now for the filtration system. Any advice. This one I might DIY. Or I'd entertain buying a system if they are out there?

simple centrifuge and wvo designs have fuges. thats what you're after for filtration. if your not confortable isntalling your own system, which is sounds like you arent, a vegistroke is probably your best bet. yes it is expensive. or you can do a ton of research and reading like me and get to where you can do it yourself, thats how many of us have done it. i think however you would be the first of us to DIY a 6.0.

Start eating out locally right now. A lot of small chinese restaurants throw their oil away which can equal to easily 20 gallons of oil a week. When I started collecting I asked one restaurant and the owner wanted to know why and if I was a state inspector. Little did I know that she knew that in Cali its illegal to throw out your oil in a restaurant and part of your health inspection is where does your waste grease go. She gives me 15-20 gallons a week and I give her a "receipt". I have bought it also from a source at 20 cents a gallon "filtered to 20 microns" but I still run mine through my filterfuge ff25.
