Thank you Whunter for this work. I have set up a link to here from the Maui Green SVO (infopop) WVO FAQ/DIY thread.

The DIY/FAQ thread has a post with lots of specific information about conversions of MB's for WVO/SVO use.

Thanks again.

I thought this was a worthy shortcut to add

This has a lot of good info on making your own biodiesel, handling safely, mixing, etc.

Injector Pumps

I have heard two schools of thought with respects to B100 (100% biodiesel) and mercedes w123 3.0L turbo diesel injector pumps:

One school claims that any amount of B100 will result in the break down of seals in the injector pump, leading to failure.

The other school claims that there were two types of pump manufacturered for this car: the one made in the USA and the one made in Europe.

Apparently, the European manufacturers had the foresight to incorporate poly seals that don't break down in the presence of a powerful solvent. The USA manufacturers, however, used much more rubber in their blend.

Can anyone shed some light on this? How would one identify their pump?

Thanks,

Joey

Sounds like BS. I know of no one losing an IJP to B100.

A very knowledgable Mercedes mechanis worked on my 83 300D grey model (European) and replaced a bad o-ring in the IP. He mentioned that the Euro-models were built with higher performance aka 'better' injection pumps than their American counterparts. He didn't say anything specific about rubber parts in the pump though.

Any MB "biodieselers" in the Northern Illinois/S. WI area?

I am trying to run on B100 homebrewed in my garage to fuel my '83 300D. I have a makeshift lab set up and am using spent frying oil from work to make the biodiesel. Is there any Benz owners out there that using biodiesel in my area? I would like to find someone to correspond with, perhaps share contacts, resources etc.
