SOB: 604 miles before veggie filter clogged

This cant be normal, specially after centrifuging but Im glad thats all it was. Truck ran like crap, turbo wouldnt spool up and my wife gave me the look of death until I switched over to diesel. Thank god we were 3 miles from home.

Which filtration system are you using? I've been looking in to the Greasecar kits and I'm just curious. I wasn't sure if it was one of their kits or DIY filtration.

I centrifuge. I bought my kit used and Im pretty sure it was all of the stuff that came with the tank that did it. The tank is baffled so its hard to clean all of it out. Its not a big deal to me since filters are 14$. Greasecar kits are ok but if you are going to pay full price I would steer away. Reason I say this is you will have to buy a 20+plate heat exchanger, plan on upgrading fuel pump since they rely on your stock one and their instructions are very generic and their tech service for trucks is pretty much terrible and thats the reason the person I bought my kit from got rid of it. I mean the instructions the originala owner had were version 1 and everything was backwards and they corrected it later but never contacted him so he never got the kit working.

What kind of centrifuge do you have? Please describe your filtration process. You should be getting wayyy more miles between filter change then that. I change mine around 5000 miles & that's still low miles for filter change. Most people double that easily.

Oh by the way I've got that look of death before as well.

I wouldn't buy a greasecar kit. I would rather do a DIY first. If your going to buy a kit get a Vegistroke or a Frybrid.

I have been having the same issues accompanied by the look of death and the comment "wanna take my car".Been working on and off but when it does its slow going with being easy on the throttle.I just fixed other issues like bad o-rings on the injectors
a new 38r turbo and have to re-install my fass pump.

my kit was used and my tank had a good 15k miles on it. I should of cleaned it out but the greasecar tanks are baffled so its hard to clean. Im not worried since I will pay 13$ for a filter any day to go 604 miles in my own vehicle.

If your CF allows for enough particulates to plug a filter that quick you have WATER PROBLEMS.

Address that for sure. Those litttle spinner CF's enstill a false sense of security.....

Start saving for injectors.

Look for the water on the bottom of the barrel. Thats where it goes and where you CF does not.

Just my opinion, I could be wrong.

How many passes do you do with the CF. Once pass with a pressurized CF will NOT get the oil clean.

2003 6.0 F350 dually on high cholesterol fuel (WVO)
2000 7.3 Excursion also on a high cholesterol fuel
