Year and model makes no difference.

Has anyone had success using a Direct Current motor for a Mobile Centrifuge setup?

Thanks!

Would you still recommend using an inline filter with this setup? I'm planning on installing my conversion kit over the next few days, and replacing my fuel filter...are you saying that you dont replace your fuel filter anymore? I have a 10 micron filter I'll use to transfer the fuel to the tank. I'm wondering if I'm going overkill with the filters. I'm also I'm concerned about the lift pump. With this clean of oil do I need to worry about this?

I dont filter my CF oil when filling my tank, if thats what you mean by inline filter. My truck has not needed a new WVO filter for 25,000 miles. The truck has a strainer in the stock heater unit that protects the lift pump, so gets filtered 2 more times in the truck. And about half the flow gets looped back around through the WVO filter more times.
