WVO's Freedom

WVO, OTOH, strikes me as a application where it is warm and you are going to be near a fuel source. Home. IOW, I cannot take that car out for a vacation or to drive around and it is confined, for all practical purposes, to near my home. This talk of a tank heater is fine. However, you still have to purge the fuel lines (assuming 2 tank system) before you make an extended stop and where would your heater plug into if it were a parking lot?
That is what is so great about a two tank system you can at anytime switch to the primary tank which can hold dino or B100 no problems at all anytime you are not bound to just WVO or dino. I find that if I filter my oil in batches of 50 gallons and put the filtered oil in ready to go clean containes of 5 gallon then I actually save time, instead of driving to the fuel station for dino. I have actually driven from Walnut creek CA to Winamucka NV and back on WVO, I just put abunch of 5 gallon containers of filtered WVO in the trunk and went that for me was if I can recall correctly 5 hours one way and 6 on the way back. Not a short trip.
Drive on
