Had a score today

Well Craigslist had its best payoff today. Guy contacted me, said he was planning a wvo setup and had been using an old mobile home on some proper had bought a while back to process and store oil. Well his buddy talked him into selling him the trailer so he needed everything gone asap. When I got there he told me if I hadn't come to get it tonight ,he was planning on dumping it at local restaurants. Not bad for a hour drive /"treasure hunt" with my 2 year old. He was excited. We had to drive thru a pasture to get it. He thought that was cool to drive in the grass. Then once I loaded up I wasn't sure if I could make it out without sinking (IT just rained)

Either way not a bad free score

I'm guessing I'm around 200 ish give or take a few gallons. D2 out here hovers around 3.60-3.75 so yeah just shy of $800 of free fuel.

Truck is scheduled to be converted the end of april if all my parts get here in time.

but then that ruins the road trip potential for a truck that gets a whopping 15mpg.

Hows what?

Veggn u and I have spoke about b100 in the past. My end goal is still a b100 powered ti jeep. But that's down the road a ways

The biggest turn off for me with b 100 is the caustic chemicals I have to have in the garage. With a 2 year old and as much as I'm not home to keep an eye on him. That's a no go for me

When I was looking into bio I ran into clay. He snake and a few others turned me onto wvo. Seems like there is a risk with all of it. For now wvo hopefully will fit my need

Its OK Vandy. It just takes some guys longer to figure it out. Sorry ya got misled.

W A Y more engine damage risk with WVO/SVO.
Only FREE D2 beats 70 b100 that is Water washed, heat dried, high quality and trouble free.

I feel ya. I "bought" this rig with the intent to run wvo. That said I traded my k5 that I paid 4k for and drove maint. Free for 3 years for it. I've been driving it for 2.5 years now with minor money spent and got a 2800 insurance check for hail damage when I got caught in the may 20th tornado we had last year. All and all I say she's paid for her self. One reason I went with an obs instead of a newer truck is that if I blow my motor I'm really not out much. At this point I'm money ahead and can pick up a newer motor for a decent price if it comes to that.

At the end of the day it's a science experiment. I can't justify dropping a lot of coin on racing cars when my wife and kid aren't able to enjoy it with me. But this is more of a family 5th wheel hauler. So I don't feel bad playing with it.

Either way It will be a learning experience. Don't hold it against me when I start calling asking about the bio side for my jeep plans
