New, Looking for WVO and HHO info

Hello all.
I'm new to the site and looking for first hand experience/knowledge on WVO and HHO use in cold weather climates. I've got a 96' F250Powerstroke. Bought it 2 yrs ago when bio-diesel was available in my area. I'm interested in putting a WVO conversion kit on it as well as possibly an HHO system. I've been reading about WVO for a while now, but info on larger rigs and cold weather is limited. The HHO stuff is pretty new to me, checked out the Hydrogen Fuel 2 Go site I recently found through this forum. Sounds good, anyone out there with cold weather experience in this system? Any and all personal experience or links would be appreciated.

the truck i my sig runs WVO. it has a pretty inexpensive kit on there, the PO installed it. it wouldnt be my first choice of kits but it works. because i run PHO (partially hydrogenated oil) i need to do some heat upgrades. thats tomorrows project. im installing an HIH (Hose in Hose) where a flexable aluminum fuel line is run inside a coolant hose, that goes to my veggie filter which has a heated mount, then im going to either make an aluminum tube heat exchanger or use a tranny cooler to heat the WVO inside the tank. the truck has about 20k veggie on it. the front tank is the converted one, i plan on getting a transfer tank in the spring to hold more wvo.

if you have fair mechanical ability you can make your own setup. after seeing how mine was doen, im confident i can do my own from scratch and make a pretty good one at that.

i coulnt be happier, i love the stuff. my next project it building a centrifuge, a fuge very similar to the one on the stick at the top of the bio-fuels forum.

im also a member of the greasecar dot com foum, a lot knowledge there, Brian Miller (on that forum) also run a 95 PSD, he knows the thing very well and has a home built setup. search around in there. feel free to ask me any questions, happy to help.

This concerns me as far as HHO goes.
