I have done two cross country trips in my CTD on veggie. First time I pulled a trailer and had one tote (275gallons) in the trailer. This was enough to make it most of the way there, refill and make it back. The other trip I did I was hauling to much other stuff to carry much fuel, and just did not make many connections for fuel so only ran about a 1/3 of the trip on veggie.

I usually have plenty of fuel here, so if someone passing through VA needs some let me know.

If anyone's travels take them up to CT or RI I would love to provide some biodiesel or WVO, a good meal and some conversation.

Jimec3: While I won't be traveling as far as CT/RI...

guys we are hitting the asphault again NEXT week and wanting to run WVO in the summer sun. Please PM me if you can help with WVO fueling. I would be happy to rest my pedal feet and trade stories (plus plenty of w123 parts leftover)

I am delivering a 300TD to Maryland for a regular collector and member's interesting transplant project!
We will be traveling up I-85 out of NC
along I-95 through VA, around DC and into MD
US-15 through PA
I-81 all the way to Ithaca, NY!

And back the same weekend

Anyone along these routes or nearby want to link up?
