can i use 100% wvo in powerstroke?

that is my question? can the injectors handle it? because if they cant im gonna get an old 7.3. i know they can handle it. i would run it only in summer too when warm not in winter. i dont have a heater kit on it and dont plan on it. if i run it in the powerstroke, im just gonna run it in it just the way it is. anybody ever run it in one?

What is being suggested as I read this is, a single tank conversion. Do I have that right?

If so the engine life will suffer. Starting and stopping on WVO is pretty tough on the injectors since the cold oil is no were near the viscosity of #2

I run my 6.0 on WVO but have heat lots of heat.
