What would it take??????

I was thinking of picking up an F250 with a 7.3 liter diesel engine as a work truck for around the yard, towing my bikes, stuff like that. The new truck I just dont want to tear it up yet.


What would it take to convert the truck to run on cooking greese? I know its kind of a general question. Would a weekend mechanic be able to do the conversion? I am pretty good with cars, diesel engines are newer to me, but not a complete mystery either.

My local bar said I can have all teh cooking oil I could ever use. I swear all they serve is fried food. I knwo I would have to get a filtration system for the house, but what all would be needed? Or am i getting in over my head?

Any help is appriciated.


Thanks

What year is the 7.3. The older ones or 1st gen is a bit harder to convert.

The 2nd gen are a breeze to convert with our kit specifically for that generation truck. Our kits allows a much faster purge time.

All our kits can be installed with just a few hand tools. It takes me three days to do an install. So you could do it in about the same time.
