What to do with WVO in tank while on vacation

Postby thangwook » Sun Apr 16, 2017 11:11 pm

Hello WVO Community!

I was just wondering if it is ok to leave WVO in my tank while i am on vacation. I will be gone 1 month and my WVO will be sitting undisturbed. Should i drain the tank and fill with diesel to flush the system? Or is it ok to just leave it as is and enjoy my vacation. your opinions are much appreciated.

Cheers!

There are too many factors that can create poly to give a good answer. The biggest is the water content and FFA of your WVO, if its low, it will be fine. If either is bad, you could have problems even without a vacation.

I use really good WVO, and can leave it for a year with no problem. More info at http://www.burnveg.com/forum/polymerization-wvo-t40.htm

Thanks Mr. Wizard!

If that's the case, I think I'll be fine with the WVO in the tank.
