Thumbs up 96 f-250 7.3 di. psd running on wvo & diesel mix

Just wanted you guys to know I am running on a mix of 20% diesel and 80% wvo ( waste veggie oil) about 1000 miles down already still going great. It is pretty cheep fuel. I also wanted to know if anyone else is doing this and how you get areound the fuel filter problem ( will clog alot sooner due to veggie oil and paper do not do well together) I carry spare under hood for emergencies. I see NO power loss or any differnce in running. I have heard if you run without filter in original area it runs poorly????? Has anyone heard of a stainless steel filter for PSD ???? to use as original equipment. I am getting 105 mpg of diesel (mixed with wvo).




96 F-250 D.I. PSD, 8" lift, 38" tires (3.55 gears),edge super chip, homemade air flow system, 3" down pipe, 4" exhaust ( 161,000 miles)

I do this on the '96 works great I was only getting like 30 mpg of #2 sometimes 40 MPG but I have 4:10's

the stock filter lasted me 4K before it finaly gooed up enough that I noticed a difference on the pyro and boost, both were lower.

Never heard of a stainless filter for a PSD that would fit in the original canister.

I am making the switch also. But I had not heard about stock filter gooing up at 4000 mi.

I recently replaced the fuel filter so it is not the original. What brand/type of filter element should I use?

I have heard of variations with different filters( inline ones) using steel wool pads for filters or using 200 count stainless mesh. I think I will have to invent one.

"most" do a full convertion and the WVO never sees the stock filter, I plan on using a racor filter with a seperate mounting base on the firewall somewhere, for the WVO and then the WVO/#2 mix will never be in the stock filter housing, just haven't got that far yet.
