WVO switching controllers?

Hey all, I am trying to piece together a Lovecraft WVO system that is on my truck and a heated fuel tank. I am wondering what my options are? I am looking for a controller that will switch from diesel to WVO at the right temps. I would like it to be as seamless as possible as I am not the only person who drives the truck. What are some of the solutions that you guys have come up with? Also is there anybody near the Portland Oregon area that can swap ideas and knowledge. Cheers!

The Lovecraft systems have a bad reputation for ruining motors. They do not purge the veg adequately nor do they heat the veg adequately. You'd be better off removing it completely and starting from scratch with a DIY system or a Vegistroke.

You probably know about the Vegistroke: www.biofuelstechnologies.com.

Here's a link that might help you DIY a good system: DIY WVO Components - Ford Powerstroke Diesel Forum
