WVO ideas and questions

ok, i was looking at this thread too https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/6...?highlight=wvo


but any way i was thinking about setting up my truck to run on WVO. Here is my general idea. Please criticize if you see any problems with this.


1. i am going to modify my aluminum auxiliary tank 100gal (with baffles). I am going to put a small honda radiator in the tank for heat exchange, i will be using my main coolant line. this will heat the wvo to about 180 (will this be a problem?)

2 have a circulation pump (on a switch) to filter the wvo down to 5 microns.

3. Put a fuel selector before the factory fuel pump. so i can utilize the factory pump. Is the heat too high for the factory pump?

also i will be monitoring the temp with in cab temp gauges and controll the system by in cab switches.

any one have anything to add or criticize about this idea?


oh and i will be heating the WVO in the fuel lines by running the coolant line next to the fuel lines (will be wrapped with insulation) will this be a problem heating #2 to this temperature?


thanks for your help guys!

dave
