I think most WVO problems happen with conversions that have a leak or other glitch. I'm skittish to run much below 50 degrees F with this method, tho one nite was out when it was 28 Deg. F, & barely made it up the hill.

Anyone else have experience with cold weather running using this method?
No direct experience but if you heat it to lower viscosity it will run in cold ambient temps.
