Diesel and wvo don't mix properly, so you will be going back to the same mess you just had. Also, need to be real sure it is filtered good enough, as there will be water and particles in the wvo. It is likely that is where all of your troubles came from, might also be hard on the rubber lines.

Well, I gather the oil from Asian joints, and it's mostly clear unfiltered and passes the crackle test easily. I filter it till it resembles honey.

This is only temporary- by the end of this week I plan to have a pre-heater and extra filtering on the truck.

What will mix with WVO?

Typically they are run in separate tanks, the diesel in one, wvo in the other. That minimizes mixing. If you go the biodiesel route, then you can blend it with regular diesel.

Read up in this forum, they can tell you much better than I can.http://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/forum168/
