Personally, if I lived in Southern AZ, I wouldnt even be considering WVO. It would be B100 all the way.
I switched to B100 not for the climate as much as the health of the engine. Ive seen way too much top side problems caused by WVO. Yes, a fraction of this may be caused by climate, but, with B100, you wouldnt have to do anything to the vehicle. In addition, WVO is not friendly to VW TDI's, not long term anyway. I experienced IP issues, and them bad boys are NOT cheap. I have now chosen to convert the fuel, not the vehicle.
I have learned a LOT running WVO, and the process to make very high quality B100 was rooted in my experience with WVO. I water wash, and honestly the BioPro for small scale production cannot be beat. NO worries about fuel quality and cleanliness when CF'ing the oil, and the reactions are amazing when the feedstock is bone dry. A 27/3 test is a breeze with clean, dry feedstocks. I should really write up a post about just operating a BioPro and the 80/20 process, although, the overwhalming majority of viewers here are interested in WVO, not B100. For future reference, those interested in this process, contact me.....
This all is just my $.02. Yes, WVO served me well for a long long time, however, after making a significant capital investment in producing B100 (see signature), I would not change back. Its just a better fuel in my opinion.....again....just my opinion.
