I look at greasecar, greasel, and Fattywagons. Fatty has a one tank system. It has a heater that attaches to the fuel lines along with a heated filter system. I live in Tennessee so we get little cold weather. I would like some professional opinions on this one tank system.
IMHO save the money. No coversion neccissary. Use a blend. Collect Used Cooking Oil, filter and DEWATER it. Then go 80 % of this oil, 20%Reg UL. Gas and some cetane boost (kugel blend) Do a coolant fuel heat exchanger for winter. You do NOT want to get this blend as hot as folk running on non blends. Just heat it some, simular to the temps of the OEM fuel heater.
