1999 Ford F-250 w/two tanks greasecar kit

Postby wvof250 » Fri Mar 07, 2008 11:58 am

I just bought my truck last month and had it converted by Greasecar. I read about Muleears adding a vegtherm to his rig and want to research options for getting my oil hotter, too. Has anyone used the Arctic Fox heaters?

Just so we know we're on the same page...an original Arctic Fox in-tank warmer is different than a Hot Fox fuel warmer although made by the same company. I have both. The Hot Fox is in my front stock vegoil tank and the Arctic Fox is in my 70 gal aux vegoil transfer tank. I don't suggest you heat up a the tank...just the fuel flow as it passes through the heated components. The ONLY reason I have the Arctic Fox is to heat the oil in the area around my transfer pump inlet tube so my 12v pump won't seize up trying to pump cold oil. It's only rated for diesel.

Go with the Vegtherm Mega. Mine is right before my fuel pump and I always see 180*F oil.
