wvo Illegal?

Hi, I have beed lurking in here for a little while and im intrested in converting to wvo... A friend of mine said that the government was sepping in on all the "home made stuff" and handing out huge fines, due to the fact it is considered free fuel and we are not paying tax's on it. Is this true? It sounds like it would be; but i dont know if cops are enforcing it. has anybody had any problems with this? also anybody from California have trouble collection the oil? Thanks in advance for any help

here is what i heard here in cali...

yes it is illegal... even Arnold got hit for running his hummer on H20....

what you have to do is keep track of all the oil your burning in your truck and at the end of the year send them their money....

im sure someone else will chim in here...

I have read in some places that you can claim the miles and pay the taxes at the end of the year. I also read that some places give you a certian amount that you can run for free and then you pay.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

Keep track of it and sent it in when you do your taxes. I think it's something around 40 cents a gallon in CA. I've gone through around 100 gallons this yr so that's around $40.

How are they going to know?
Stay under the radar and don't sweet it.
As far as a two tank conversion like mine, I still buy diesel fuel...just not nearly as much as i used to and i keep the recipts to prove i buy diesel.
What can they say about it?
Anyone who runs 100% bioD and does not use any diesel has a different situation.
But, theres an estimated 25,000 people soing this and the Feds aren't spending the man power to hunt us down. Cali has tax forms for this to pay each quarters estimated fuel usage. Other states are looking into it but like i said, its low priority to them.

With a two tank system all they are going to find when they dip your stock tank is good old #2. Most of the second tanks just look like a transfer tank or a truck tool box so I doubt they are going to look any further. Plus following all the rules isn't any fun anyways

DFA has a new 40 gallon under belly tank which would make you even more stealthy...i'm considering one.
