WVO temperatures above 160 F


I have read that WVO temperatures should be between 200 and 220 F at the injector tip for optimal combustion.

My WVO is heated through HIH to 150F and then super heated with a 200 Watt induction heater around the metal fuel lines from the fuel pump to each cylinder bank.

I am trying to increase the WVO temperature from 160F to 200F but am failing.

I assume the fuel gallery in the head cools the fuel down to 160-180 F depending on environment temperature / engine oil temperature.

Has any body has realized higher WVO temperatures in the powerstroke.

My truck:
WVO converted E350 (quiqley 4x4). 175000 miles, 3000 on veggie, replaced fuel pump ( high pressure side failure due to broken check valve)

Thanks Joeblack5
