So I came across a pretty good filtering set up on cl that I'm considering. It comes ready to go with a sucker tank. I also found a diesel craft fuge for $200 more that will come with every thing to fuge as well as a transfer pump to send filtered oil to your truck. What do you guys think would be a good price for the fuge? Thanks
I would stay away from spinner type CF's entirely. Yes, some have had success with them, but they do not compare to gravity fed open rotor CF's.
On the bright side, a super sucker is a great place to start. Collection can be very frusterating. So roll with that.
Look at absolute centrifuge's rotor/mount/motor kit. It is around $500 if memory serves me correctly. It is a significant improvement over a spinner. The forums are full of horror stories about spinners. I in fact own one. It is laying on the pole barn floor, connected to the pump. I got it on a V3 deal I did a while back. It was free with the deal. The seller must have realized what is was worth. Just my $.02 though. Its your engine.
On a side note: Check the forums. Maybe you have someone in your immediate area already running a good CF set up. I have several guys bring oil for cleaning. They collect their oil. call, and drop off dirty oil while loading clean oil.....Very convienent for them. The going rate seems to be about 25% of the total feedstock delivered.
I forgot to answer the later part in the OP.....To filter or not to filter........
I would buy D2 or make B100 before I went down the whole bag filter/spin on filter program again.
