Alas, the mystique has faded, at least for me. GregMN put up a link to his fantastic recipe for greasing a W126 w/ OM603. Junkyard tank from the same body back to back w/ the stock tank. O lala!, HX and heated filter in the the trunk. $500 all in. True, a steel tank, not poly kosher, but last summer I cleaned a colonel sanders worth of chicken skin out of my steel grease tank, turned out the actual problem was a kink in the copper nipple off of my heat exchanger.

I would still stay away from WVO in the stock tank, finally caught up w/ Oldsinner111 in the form of bad filter plugging and such after a few years.

John, you still blend? Do you ever have poly probs in the stock tank?

Still the cold upflow?

I just filter 100 micron, 5 micron and QND and then the tank or a storage barrel. Little or no PHO in my feedstock though.

All things are burning, know this and be released.

Still blending with no problems, and no poly in the tank by keeping the mix at least 50% pump diesel and the remainder is a blend of biodiesel, UVO, kero and petrol, adjusted seasonally. Feedstock is used canola oil cleaned with cold upflow then cold filtered to 5µ. Cold filtering the mix when it's pumped into the vehicle tank eliminates the fats, PHO, and HMPEs that clog filters and screens. I get the UVO from the best suppliers who only cook raw spuds and fish and give the animal fat UVO to the 2-tank folks I know. There's enough for everyone.

my kit still runs great...70k miles on.

i dont have to drive nearly as much as a i used to so i mothballed my rig and run regular petrodiesel out of it to keep the lines flowing and clean if i go back to WVO.

WVO is *hard* to get around Boston at any price.

is WVO out of style enough yet to come back into style? lol
