WVO;How hot is too hot?

Postby hheynow » Sun Apr 27, 2008 8:03 pm

I insulated my vegoil kit this past winter and now that the warmer weather is here I'm seeing higher vegoil readings right before the heads than last year. Today I saw 190*F with ambient at only 84*F. Sure heat is good but how much heat is too much? I believe I'll see vegoil readings at 200+*F later this summer during hotter weather and while driving on the interstate.

Well if you have a greasecar kit, or a full return to tank, you could hit close to 200F in your tank, and create a big poly mess, which I have seen on several greasecar conversions.
