Will this setup work?

Now this is something I wondered about from day one. Everyone seems to build a completely separate fuel system for their wvo setup. But is that really needed?Why can't I just tap into the existing fuel system and run my wvo thought it?

So here is my plan, i want to use two 3 way solenoids and plumb them into the factory feed and return lines right before the factory fuel pump. Obviously I will be running a hotfox or something like that to preheat the oil. That's really about it.

The reason I was thinking this route is because I don't really need to run wvo for my daily commute. I only travel 22mi round trip for work 4 days a week. I really want the wvo for longer trips up to the mountains and for going 4wheeling.

This will not work in the CO mountains in the winter...or summer for that matter. GFS (Golden Fuel Systems) has their system designed this way (or used to). Do some searching on their systems and get back to this post. You will decide to design your system a different way, if you want to avoid grenading your powerstroke.

Two tank heated...you will be thanking yourself when its below zero on the top of a mountain and you HAVE NOT contaminated your main fuel system with veg oil that is froze.
