Optimum temp for WVO and other ??

1. Is there an optimum temp for the wvo to run in a PSD?
2. Is there a temp that's too hot ?
3. How long can you store wvo from the restaurants? ( I would like to stock up now so when I get converted I'll have a supply going.) Thanks to anyone for replys.

I think but do not know for sure that you do not want a temp above 200 degrees but about 150 degrees. FABMANDELUX is the one to ask, he know much more than I do.

#1 150-160 F is the number most shoot for. In a PSD that is hard to measure sine the injectors are in the heads a long with the fuel rails. Most think the PSD is the perfect engine for WVO. It has built in fuel line heaters. I get oil going into the heads at about 145-148F so I have to assume I'm picking up even more heat from the heads.

#2 In a PSD there probably isn't a too hot temp. Since we don't have an IP we don't need to worry about overheating it. But, how your heating it to that temp could be an issue. If you use some sort of electric heater to heat it you always want a filter of some sort after the heater.

#3 Not sure I've read 6-9 months if it's unfiltered much longer if it filtered and dewatered. I use mine pretty fast so I've never have any around more then 2 months.
