I've been thinking of doing the same. Another thought would be to use kerosene (at least to a small enough percentage). Say you run 15% vegi. Out of a 10 gallon mixture, instead of running 8.5 gallons of just diesel to 1.5 gallons of vegi oil, you might think of going 6.5 gallons diesel, 2 gallons of k-1 kero, then 2 gallons of filtered wvo. This way you are thinning the wvo so that this mixture wouldn't be thickening the diesel (at least not near as much).
Some people will have nothing to do with kerosene due to the dye and tax laws of off-road fuel, but I'm curious as to how much dye 2 gallons of kero would show up in a 10 gallon mix? I'm also curious how many non-industrial passenger trucks ever get their tanks dipped to see the color of the fuel???
Anyway, it's something to think about.
Erbilabuc, I have a question for you. I remember some time back you had tried the blending thing and it was a nightmare for you. I am only asking this to see what mixture you had tried. I remember looking at your fuel bowl and it looked like goop. Almost like fat. Was that a mixture issue? Basically I'm only asking to see if 15% would be safe and would help prevent the issues such as you had back then. Also, do you personally think that kerosene would help in the matter?
Sorry not meaning to hi-jack the thread.......
