Best WVO System?

Now that I have my vegistroke installed and I have a grin on my face all of the time. I have a buddy that has a dodge and he is asking me what the best system is for him. He thinks I am an expert!.

He has looked at the plantdrive... What do you experts think?

Depending how inclined he is... maybe he should do some research and look into building his own system. That's the route I'm going to end up taking. I thought I was all set to get a greasecar system, then read and read some more, and as much as everyone raves about the vegistroke, it's well out of my price range. But people are more or less building there own for dirt cheap, and that's right up my alley! Otherwise, he should do what you are essentially doing and get on some cummins forums and find out what is what.

His dodge is a 2001. He said the plantdrive is not a complete kit they just give you enough stuff to get you started. So is frybird the best you have seen so far for a cumins?

James from DFA recommended the Frybrid kit for both the Cummins and the Duramax, but if you can wait, DFA is testing a product for one of these (I can't remember which).

There is a disclaimer on the frybrid site about the VP4 Bosch Injector pumps that if they dont have positive inlet fuel pressure they will fail, so thats one thing to watch out for so I would get a kit that specifically addresses that or he would have problems with that.

If DFA comes out with a kit for the Dmax and cummins that would be sweet, but I feel exclusive having the one and only vegistroke and its ford only. Powerstrokes by design are are perfect for WVO.

There is no easy way to convert the 24v cummins. If your buddy had a 12v, that would be better...or a PSD.
I would make Bio-D if i was in his shoes and didn't want to trade trucks.

I am glad I own a Ford! My first one was a '71 F100 Custom and have driven one ever since.

Veggie fuel

I have been researching the veggie oil, I have a 2000 Powerstroke. I heard via the grapevine that the feds or state was concerned about the homemade diesel---they are not getting tax money off it. Anyone else heard anything? I am afraid to invest time and money if they are gonna take some kind of action. I guess they would consider us "bootleggers".

Nothing prevents anyone from paying their road taxes. If you drive on public roads, regardless of what fuel you are using, you owe road taxes and are responsible for paying them.

If my memory is correct the federal tax is something like .24 cents a gallon. The State tax would depend on where you live.
