wind powered CF- Question for SunWizard

Do you think a windmill could power a pump to push fluid fast enough thru something like a diesel craft?

I could see a WVO fired heater heating the oil while a windmill/turbin spins the pump.

Just a thought

Yes a windmill can power anything you like including the heater if you get a big enough one. Its best if hooked to batteries and an inverter since wind power varies so much.
