I just got my injector pump and injectors rebuilt and was wondering how I could start using waste resterant oil for fuel without hurting these new parts. I was also wondering if anyone in Knoxville, TN. has had success and how they started. I have a comercial location I could set up my operation but I want to do it right the first tim. Any advice would be helpfull.
WVO and Biodiesel are really quite different in their use.
To start using BD from a commercial source just pull up to the pump fill your tank and drive off. Go by the parts house and buy a new fuel filter, to have on hand incase the current filter plugsup. Throw the new filter under the seat and remember to install it after the first tank of BD.
To start using DIY BD you will need to build a processor. This web site will get you started and teach you everything you must know. http://www.biodieselcommunity.org
Once you have done the research come back here and ask questions. One of our resident contributors, FABMANDELUX, is a bona fide expert on the topic.
To start using WVO you are going to have to install some mods on the truck, WVO must be heated to avoid damaging your engine and you should start up and shut down on good ole #2. These guys have a pretty good system and one of their guys hangs out here. http://www.dinofuelalternatives.com/
be careful what you buy for WVO conversion there is some real junk out there.
