My 300D is completely stock and runs great as it is, down to about 20F. I did it this way as an experiment to see how good they work with no mods. I haven't had to change the little stock filter in 15k miles. I use V80/D20 with winter diesel that I store up (because its thinner.)

denson,
You need to get a fuel pressure gauge on your truck ASAP!
Assuming you have the stock fuel pump on the frame rail when that fails theres a very high chance you will also need to replace some of your injectors!
The last victim I talked with lost 5 injectors(trying to pump P100 in a poorly designed conversion)

my WVO is thinned out, dewatered, and it's been faily hot. My fuel filter is clean. But I guess a pressure gauge is a bad idea either.
