Tdiclub.com has info on some of the ways to trick the computer to advance the timing improving fuel burn.... actually on both diesel and WVO.

There are a few things that will kill mold.
Copper...bad juju
Zinc...also bad jujuu
SILVER!! Anybody know if silver will interact negatively with VO? Maybe tossing a silver ring into the tank is the solution? CoachGeo, why don't you test it and report back?
Late 99 Ford F-250, Designed and installed at home, 30 kMi on VO. WVO temp at solenoid valve is 185-195+F, winter-summer.

Mold or other microbes can't grow without moisture present. If you've got moisture in your fuel you've got bigger problems than mold.
Properly dried fuel won't get mold.
If you've got mold in your fuel you've got moisture problems which will harm the engine.
