I think you mean "polymerize."

Yeah, you can always find someone who is running WVO with copper and mild steel components for X number of years, but that is rare. The best thing to do is use aluminum components and fuel lines, and make sure you have a separate fuel pump and fuel filter for your veg system. And blends are a waste of time, money, and provide no real benefit. As one of the previous posts stated, if you fridge it, that'll tell you if the blend is not worth it.
