Postby SunWizard » Tue Aug 12, 2008 10:40 am

I am doing hands-on workshops on WVO conversions and filtering at the Sustainable Living Fair, 9-20/21-2008. There will be WVO converted vehicles on display, including mine and others, and my Dieselcraft Centrifuge rig. If you are near Northern CO, check it out, its got fun, inspiring speakers, bands, 50 workshops, 200 vendors, solar, wind, veg. oil, biodiesel, food, and beer!

Workshop description:
This hands-on workshop will guide you though the basics of converting a diesel engine to run on straight waste vegetable oil (SVO/WVO) with the flip of a switch. We will cover the stock function of the diesel fuel system and its transformation to SVO. We will compare several popular kits, and show how to create your own. The "how to" of basic wiring, valves, controls, and different options for plumbing. Learn how to build a centrifuge rig to dewater and filter in 1 step, as well as other filter methods, and testing for water. Several converted vehicles will be available to study. Designed for the beginner to the professional mechanic.
