6.0 on Veggie Oil

Hi-

I'm a big 7.3 fan, but I'm thinking about making the jump to the 6.0. I've got lots of questions, but I'll be able to answer most of them by searching this forum. Right now I'm looking for information on the fuel delivery system. Are there any websites that explain the system in detail, hopefully with pics? I'm mainly interested in: 1)the connections between the filter bowl and fuel rails, 2) sensors and locations, 3) does fuel return to tank or is it deadheaded, 3) info on the fuel conditioner, etc.....

I have had great success running my 7.3 on vegetable oil, but I spent money and time to do it right. I hope to do the same with a 6.0.

Does anyone out there have personal experience running a 6.0 with a veggie conversion kit?

Any sources of info would be greatly appreciated.

I have seen a couple of people here in Vegas doing it and they seem happy with it, they tow horses quite a bit and no complaints yet .

Soon to add 4" turbo back, Guages, and SCT with some tunes, and of course I would bet new headgaskets and studs when the truck tells me it needs them.

I don't have first hand experience with the 6.0L (my cousin has one and I have driven it but that is about all) I read some sites saying they have lots of trouble with them. Not so much with the motor but with the computer controls. If I had the money for a new truck I would use BD, not run it on WVO. If you realy want to use WVO I would check with some of the companies who have experience doing conversions like goldenfuel systems and veggiestroke and see what they have found it took to do the conversion sucessfully.

Fords official line... B5 max. and it must meet biodiesel fuel standards. And you have a 100K warranty.

100% WVO will void your warranty.
In fact WVO in any amount will void it.
