Shane I always wanted your truck. Maybe I will play the loto some more :)

Bout the buck in your avatar. I saw one about that size (his rack wasn't that tall) but the ole boy didn't stick around long enough to get even the scope on him. Good luck this year.

Bump on the system...Good luck

So you're saying the 7.3 is more bio-compliant than the 6.0? If I had the $ I'd get that system from you. Been wanting to try biodiesel for a few years now.

Thanks man. :thumb:

The injectors in a 6.0 are a little "picky" compared to the 7.3 IMO. I dont doubt that the bio I have been making wouldnt run just fine in a 6.0. I just choose not to. Thanks for looking.:nod:

What have you been doing with the bi-product, Glycerin? I was considering making biodiesel but not sure what to do with the Glycerin. Don't want to be fined for dumping it and don't want to store it.

Good looking setup you've got.

Thanks

Not to hijack, but when you trade your truck in, wanna trade injectors and turbo? They probably wont give you any more for it either way. :dunno:

Thanks. I dump my glycerin in the waste oil tanks behind my restaurants. We caught a local guy with his super sucker hose in the wvo bins, so we put the glycerin back in for him. lol. Anyway, the restaurant owner said he was glad for me to dump it back in because he got paid by weight when they suck it out.(The WVO from the kitchen goes into cubies for me- not in the bin out back). I catch all my wash water in a 1/2 buried 250 gallon tote. When its full, I pump it into an empty tote( via a sumerged bilge pump from Wal mart. got enough cord to run to the truck battery with gator clips) on my truck and take it to the wastewater treatment plant. They give me permission to dump it. If you have public sewer, you can run it into the drain. Im on septic so I cant.

Do you still have the 7.3?
Yes sir. Still got it(for now).

Congrats! I know you're happy. I was hoping to get to see the set up in another couple of weeks. :dunno:
The guy just hauled of the 2 big totes of oil yesterday. The processor may actually still be here when yall come to town. Or he may come get some equipment each afternoon after work.:dunno:

The guy that bought it is our City Garage superintendant. He's been running straight WVO in his little VW truck and not having good luck with it for about a year. He ran some bio and loved it. We have been talking about getting him into bio for a while.
