WVO car recommendations

Postby Loxley » Thu Sep 28, 2017 9:41 am

I love my pickup... been successfully running WVO for several years now. However, the wife would like a car, preferably a sedan. Because everything's been running so smoothly with the truck I've convinced her to go veggie with the future car (don't worry, we're keeping the truck!). The only thing is, I don't know which model of car is best for running veg.
In your experience, what makes, models, years of cars run best on WVO?
Thanks :-)

80-95 Mercedes. Get a turbo model, the non-turbo are underpowered. My 1987 Mercedes 300TD Wagon pictures here was the nicest I have seen or driven. They are really rare in a wagon, many more cars than wagons were imported in 87 which was a big advance over the 80-85 models.
YVORMV - Your veg. oil results may vary.
95 Dodge Cummins 4x4 SVO WVO conversion.
81 Mercedes 300D- stock and happy on V80/D20 blend.

I have a 2006 VW Jetta TDI that I have been running WVO for over a year now with almost 30k miles. I installed a Greasecar Kit on my own and really enjoy it.
