Now isnt this nice & peachy!! Kind of like "the kids grew up & finally got their own place" sub-forum !!!

Now, no ringing mom & dad at 3am (main diesel forum) when it wont run!!

Na, just stirring !! I truly hope this sub-forum becomes for alternate fuel use what the main diesel forum is for MB diesels!!

Maybe when some one gets to it, a sticky listing any good reports & useful links would be great. I promise to contribute positively!!

Good Luck!!

WVO conversion help wanted

Hello,
I have just purchased a 92 300d for conversion, 2.5 turbodiesel. Planning a heated 2 tank custom system, HIH fuel line design. I will be using one selector switch for the supply line and a second seperate selector switch for the return.
My specific questions are:

Where should I locate the fuel line switches?

Supply: looks like right after the elbom on the clear primary filter would be a good location

Return: I'm not sure which line is the return to tank?

I have also heard about a Banjo" bolt on the filter that may need to be sealed off, please advise
