Looks like a good job. How big is that tank, and where do you have that mounted?

Thats quite the console, nice work on the descriptions!

Thank you for the kind words Sunwizard. I apologise for the bad link, I'm still learning the game! Tha tank was a gift, can you believe that? It came out of a boat and is all stainless steel. My buddy and I are reducing it so that it will fit across the truck bed behind the cab. It will hold in the region of 345 liters (65x13.5x24 inches) when finished. I use the truck for hauling a 5th wheel so I felt the need for a long range VO tank. The console picture was created using a .jpg image from my digital camera then manipulated with Microsoft Publisher.

Nice gift, that amount of stainless is getting very expensive lately!

I've edited the link in my first post to coincide with that in Sunwizards post. I will continue to update the pictures as the work progresses. All is proceeding smoothly at the moment :D :D :D

I need some advice guys! Can someone tell me how to go about painting the stainless steel fuel tank. I would like to use a flat black underseal type product but I am informed that stainless is very difficult to paint. :( :( So any suggestions :?: :roll:

Use marine epoxy based primer. If you can sandblast the tank exterior first to roughen it up, it will adhere better.

I believe you can get a Epoxy based paint from NAPA. It is a paint for truck frames it is a tough paint, we painted the Steel water troughs in my brothers barn two yrs. ago with it and it has held up great, feed cart doesn't scratch it. It is available in black. a little pricey, but like your FASS it is worth it!!!! I run a FASS also.

Make sure you use a metal etch before you apply the paint or primer. you can use Dupont vari-prime or equal, as the etch and primer or you can just use a strait etch. I can't remember the name of Duponts etch, I use vari-prime on everything anymore. It will make a big difference in the adhesion.

Cumminscanuck,

How's the coversion doing? Any problems? This is a setup that you made up yourself, correct?

Excellent work, oh wise one!

I've been a little to busy to post just lately but the conversion works like a charm. I now have 10,000 kilometers on wvo with no problems. I experienced some fuel pressure decrease after the first 2700 kms. due to the filter clogging up with residue in the tank and lines but since then, no problems. The replacement is still going strong.
I had some problems also with the pipe insulation that I was using under the hood. It could not take the heat in the manifold area and kept melting. I have covered it with aluminum tape which seems to have cured the problem.
All in all I'm very pleased with the way the system has turned out. I'm not so sure about the "wise one" though, most of what I have done has been as a result of information and guidance from guys on this and other web sites.

Hey CC,

Are you using a Centrifuge? That should help with the clogging. I would like to get one. Make sure when you pour in you WVO from your container don't use every last drop, that's usually where most of the junk is. I always just refilter the last 1/2 liter or so.

No Dave, no centrifuge YET? but I do plan on getting one. :mrgreen: My oil settles in the cubies for a couple of weeks before being poured into a "John Galt" upflow settling system. It is then pumped through a 5 then a 1 micron (nominal) filter into storage barrels. I let it stand for a further two weeks before drawing off the top two thirds of that barrel. Each batch is hot pan tested.
My early problems with the filter were the result of old gasoline residue in the tank I used. It had been a gas tank in a boat before I cut it down to suit my needs. I tried to get all the residue out (it was like brown dust all over the inner tank surfaces) but I just could not get it all. The filter did though!!
I now have 4500 kms on this filter with no signs of problems.
