Converted '84 Mercedes 300SD

Postby hheynow » Thu Apr 03, 2008 10:36 pm

Saw my first Mercedes conversion today and was LMAO when I saw the fuel tank under the hood. There's a Veg Power vegoil heated filter head, a Pollak valve, a 12v inline heater and a tiny inline fuel pump.

Though I'd get some feedback on the Blitz diesel tank. :mrgreen:

Makes me appreciate my system.

As a long time advocate of small purge tanks/large veggie tanks, I like the location and especially the addition of a fuel gauge.
