Filter it to 10 Micron to get thru your fuel filter. You could run B100 during summer but winter i would cut way back unless you heat it.

winter isn't a problem,i live in central Florida,if it gets blow 40 it doesn't stay there long
I hate to sound like an idiot but,you're saying filter it and pour it right in the tank,as long as i add it to existing fuel,it will run finr and won't hurt any thing...fuel lines, hoses,pump..ect.

You are rolling the dice and the life of your truck is at stake.

Why not do the mods and run straight WVO or not do the mods and run Bio.
Either way is 100 times less risky than mixing VO and diesel.

Talking

Look around here more & you will re think that. In a nut shell wvo will not stay mixed with petro diesel. un-heated straight WVO will cause all kinds of problems. If you have a Constant supply of WVO Look at Lesk WVO converson kits or Bio-D processor, Appelseed, Biodieselsolutions ect. I have the bio-dsolutions unit a bit pricey still gona take about 800 gallons to pay for its self but no more money to the bad guys...
