My other WVO blender....

Is a 97 Dodge Ram 2500 with a 5.9 12 valve Cummins

I have done a few mods. Intake & exhaust plus I turned up the fuel a bit. The blend is heated with a 12v fuel filter wrap around heater. The blend is 15% RUG/85% WVO

With over 600 pounds torque at the rear wheels on WVO= FUN!!

Oh Yeah, it has a Dana 70 rear end with 3.54 gears & posi

Here you go. The pic shows the wrap around fuel heater, wraped in aluminum tape to help insulate it. The other pic. shows some of the insulation around the injector lines(yellow zip ties)

You can find the heater at www.greasel.com

Now a practical question...

Do you use your truck? (other than for a commuter car)

Matt; Didn't see the heater there...? but this coolant fuel line looks interesting for heating blend up to just the right temp...

$7.00 per foot isn't too bad either....

I would love to have something like that with some power that ran off of veggie oil. My step dad recently bought something that looks like a mail truck but bigger to run off of bio. Its nice to have a big V-8 diesel like that.

Excellent...there is a huge rash of people who drive around in trucks around here and I get tired of trying to see around them in traffic during my commute...

Our F-350 usually is hauling a camper, trailer, or both.

Not to start an argument or hijack this thread, but I agree. I can't stand people in large SUVs / Pick-ups getting 8 mpg with not a scratch on it (clearly not a work truck) and one person sitting in it in traffic.

Its not a V-8..Its a inline 6 / 5.9L turbocharged/intercooled 12valve diesel.

The truck is making a mild 26 psi of boost right now.

MPG= 22/23 on the highway...City MPG all bets are off...I like to push on the right pedel. Its fun to smoke the ricers with the bed full of carpet & pad.
