so lemme get the main concept down on cf.

you have a dirty tank of vo. heat it up so it is lquid and flows. flows into a series of filters in different sizes with the smallest at the end. then flows to the other tank which is the tank you pump into your truck. right? and that filtered tank is heated so you can pump it into your vo tank on the truck.

whats this water in vo about? or do you use a water separater for vo like there is in the diesels with water separaters for diesel fuel?

Are you mocking our efforts? Or are you serious?

ok i watched the vid an others from that guy. thats cool how that works. but still wouldnt you want to filter it or running that once or twice through that cf is good enough?

A paper filter or bag filter will not improve the cleanliness of properly CF'd oil. No other process I have discovered will provide cleaner or dryer oil IMHO.

....and I hae CF'd thousands of gallons of WVO.:thumb:

then how many times do you run it through that? i guess you wont have to worry on a crisco paper filter lmao.

looking on the site from simple cf, the one peice is not in production anymore. theres a two piece now.

how much oil does one generally not get to use. as in dirty oil. and where do you dispose of it?

and im guessin it has to be heated going into the cf as well...

how much oil does one generally not get to use. as in dirty oil. and where do you dispose of it? depends how dirty it is. vegginpsd and tubular031 can generally spin a 275 gallon tote without cleaning the bowl until the finished, so in the end maybe a quart or two of nasty vo?

and im guessin it has to be heated going into the cf as well... its reccomended. wvodesigns has an inline heater available.
answers in blue. check out fastcote's fuge sticky, a great build there and some good pics, that may help answer some questions as well.

Jarrod, there are lots of threads you need to read to understand these basics. Start reading.

I just did about 450 gal and cleaned my CF just because it did not feel right to go longer. Picked only a few scoops out. But then again this was oil that had been sitting in the tote for maybe 6 months so gravity helped me a ton. But remember gravity = 1x CF (aka forced settling) = 1500x :)

CF is the way to go !

i know it will take time for him and everyone to accept the idea when they see the results and figures.
The best thing to do is not tell everyone. Trust me you will get reallyyyy tired of telling the story and answering the 100 questions when people find out.
