Over the long weekend I got my system up and running and have about 600 miles on veggie now:woot:. What a feeling to see that little green light come on and stay on. I plan on putting some serious miles on this summer and can't wait to hit the road. I still can't get over the comments and looks I get when running on veggie. Yesterday morning the lady at the store kept asking who in the world would be grilling out at 7:30 in the morning:hehe:. Thanks again for everyone who has helped me get to this point especially Clay:thumb:.

Congrats man, glad to hear it!!

I got my tank in last week...should have the remainder of the kit in the next few days.

Then it's time to process some oil and get this thing installed.

who's system is the best for the money. I dont have 8 grand to invest...so like most of us the 4.50 per/gal has put a crunch on my budget, but I am not gonna wait around for my favorite Uncle to do something about it. I was looking at this 40 gal system...what do you guys think? :Freedom Fueler Biodiesel Processor

What I am running is a SVO/WVO system where you just run filtered and dewatered oil straight in a dual tank system. This is different than bio where you are actually modifying the fuel as opposed to the truck. Check it out Dino Fuel Alternatives: Vegetable Oil Fuel Systems

Congrats!!! Good to hear you are up and running on WVO. I love it when people look at me weird cause the smell my exhaust. It just happened to me today when I was at my parents house. They are getting a new septic system and all of there equipment is diesel. All of those guy's couldn't figure out were the smell was coming from till' one of them asked.

WOW that is alot!!! do the research and you can build one for about 500 bucks or less. a really nice processor is about 1k. 3500 buys about 750 gal of diesel at the moment. Plus you need the meth and the lye which is more cost plus the cost of the collection gear. find oil first then build. oil is very hard to find.

Sorry to hijack!
