First time poster = n00b

Postby indyveg » Wed Dec 04, 2013 10:11 pm

Hi from Indianapolis. I run a 300D on a two tank system using gravity filtration and a 5 micron whole house water filter (basically). My fuel is soy collected from 2 Chinese restaurants and is generally pretty decent (not too chunky). I have a question about some HORRIBLE metal goo that collected on my filter head. Is this 'polymerization'?! I almost looks as if the oil 'melted' the metal over time?! Thanks in advance, JD

Here's a picture.

Hi,
Yes that looks like poly, see the thread on the top of this forum section. Do you do any water tests on your WVO?

I have not done any testing. Looks like that needs to change NOW! Eish.
