I know I have seen it here somewhere that you want the oil to be at about 160 degrees when it enters the motor. I have just been running my v/o system for a few days now, but it is hot here in FL and I have never seen the temp up over 150. I have not run on the highway yet, just local roads and in town, but even running at 60 mph., it is maxing at 150.
I have an f250 2000 7.3. Running HIH under the truck for about 7'. Come out of the tank with a 3/8" high injection fuel line to the HIH which is about 3' tops from tank to HIH. As I said, the HIH runs about 7' to the pump, then to the filter (wrapped one time with heater hose) out of filter to heat exchange unit to the motor.
Temp gauge is around 14" from where it enters the motor.
No problems so far, but just wondering if I need to add some heat somehow to the line? Wondering what it will do in the winter if it is topping out at 150 in the summer.
