Veggie fuel rides

I wanted to see what everyone else out there is driving on homemade biodiesel, svo or whatever else you are putting in your fuel tank. This is me.

bought the truck with a grenaded transmission for 5,000$. The hybrid sticker sealed the deal since I bought this truck specifically to convert to veggie oil last year.

Running WVO - start and stop on diesel to flush the fuel system of oil that will thinken when the motor cools. The WVO is heated by engine coolant to reduce viscosity for proper combustion. the oil is highly filtered.

Biodiesel (B100) - reducing the viscosity of WVO/VO using a chemical reaction to drop triglycerides. can run 100% in warmer climates without a kit. some odler diesels will need their natural rubber lines replaced with synthetic rubber as B100 will eventually eat through the natural stuff. a mix of bio and diesel generally required the closer you get to freezing.

stick around and read all of our ramblings. youll learn a ton.

What temps are "warm", a station here now has B100 for $1 less a gallon, but it gets down to 40 at the moment. Some others offer B80, but it's the same price..

i would hesitate if the temp ever dropped below 45. B100 should be fine, but i would wait. B50 or B80 should be fine in those temps.

with home brew, i saw cloudiness start at 40*F in some batches, and gelling in the low 30's. i did notice it took over 24 hours at upper 30's to 40's to cloud.
