Okay, I'm sorry. I overreacted.

Most of the people here came over from infopop. There's a certain "history" over there. Intense personalities, hidden motives and sparce moderation set the stege for some pretty ugly arguments.

Anyway, I'm used to certain people ridiculing me for not getting my conversion together and for being extremely concerned with safety.

I thought you were starting with me. I was wrong.

I went back and deleted the part of my post that was overly defensive. I would appreciate if you would delete your response as well.

Can we start over?

They don't have a price list. Poorly designed website. They raised their prices far above whats listed in post 1 of this thread.

No you need to build a rig to pump and heat it, see the dieselcraft thread.

I get excited reading these threads, thinking finally, I wont have to buy filters anymore... then get shot back down, lol


Does anyone else sell a CF that just needs to be turned on, without having to pay hundreds of dollars, if not thousands?

Dieselcraft is the only one you can buy ready made, no plumbing needed, but it costs >$1000.

Again, $1350 is A LOT of money, its for personal use, not commercial


But besides the price, do you have any demo's in the Southern California area?

torkg,

I am a farmer suffering, living in Nova Scotia ...and feel unable to do demos in the Southern California area. Sorry ! :oops:

We pay ( today ) $ 1.55 / Liter for Diesel in Nova Scotia.
If I do the math, then it takes 871 Liters to get even.

Diesel is $5/gal in so cal. Not taking into account the currency exchange that would be about 300 gallons of diesel (approximating $150 for shipping). The elites that are driving the dollar down could create $8-10/gal diesel before too long. $1350 is an investment meant to save us money. I salute the Nova Scotia Farmer for is ingenuity. Counting my time, I've spent more than $1350 developing my own cleaning system (and it's still not finished!). Value is more than numbers on a price tag.

And I understand its an investment, but it also has alot of moving parts that might, and will eventually break down, and being in another country makes that kind of difficult to get replacements.

I also dont know about spending $1300+ on something I haven't seen work, its just my way of thinking, please dont take any offense to it, but I like to test drive vehicles, and take them to a mechanic before purchasing them, same applies to anything else, especially a technology I've never seen work, but trust me, I do want to believe in it!

Hey PSeyele, do you have an operational CF system?

operational . . . no. But I'm getting close. I need to replace my welding goggles before I can finish my tank. I wish I have more electronics experience so I could automate like BMW fan has. I've got my sub assemblies about complete . . . almost time to put them all together and start filtering the bean!
