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, 250 vendors, solar, wind, veg. oil, biodiesel, food, and beer!

Workshop description:
Learn how to convert your diesel car or truck to run on free 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 WVO. 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 de-water and filter in 1 step, and other filter methods, and testing for water. Several converted vehicles will be available to study. Designed for the beginner to the professional mechanic or layperson.

I met you at the sustainable living fair, My name is Jason and I told you a little about my converted full size skoolie. Just wanted to say hi and tell you I think your site is greatly organized and comes across as a pro show all the way. Maybe next year I'll bring "Big Blue" down for the fair and at least let you take a look at her. The second or third week of april I'll be putting on another "Veggin at the Basin" beach party. Last year we had a solar powered hottub buried in the snow(109 degrees without insulation all day), solar music, fine libations and finer food. This was supported by the Arapahoe Basin mountain and we have been asked back. Good folks if ya like to ski or not. I will be frequenting your site often and thanks for doing what you do! RECYCLER

Hi glad you found this place and like it. The A basin party sounds fun, please post a thread here when the date gets near. I have been skiing in CO for 42 years.

I have a solar heated hot tub at my house (with wood fired backup.)
