Running WVO without a system (in San Diego)

Sorry if this post is repetitive...

Can I run filtered WVO into a diesel engine without a system in warm weather? I'm thinking of getting a VW Passat and made a connection with a local WVO filter-er. Anyone see any reason as to why this wouldn't work?

New & inspired

Hello veggers,
I've been burning WVO for a couple of years now & for several thousand miles & I'm loving it. I've got a two tank setup on the vehicle.
As for WVO processing, I gravity settle the gunk & water then filter down to 1 micron using a custom designed filtration tower that I would like to post about in the future. I'm currently saving up for a centrifuge setup so I can more ...

Hey guys, I'm pretty new to all this veggie oil stuff Im decently mechanically inclined, but been looking for a bus lately and i finally found a couple down in the states. I was hoping it was going to have the 7.3l diesel but unfortunately it has the 6.0l diesel on a 2005 or 2007 ford e450. I heard this motor is junk could anyone convince me otherwise? Have many people converted these to running ...

Newbe Can it be done

Hello everyone, I have been doing a lot of reading and have some questions I am thinking of buying a motorhome and want to know if a system could be built in the storage area so that I could just pull into a place suck the wvo into the RV, filter it and then run it? Also I live in Florida where it is always hot would I still need to heat the oil? Unless ...

I am looking to get a diesel conversion van and travel around the US next summer rock climbing. I was hoping to use wvo, or at least biodiesel. I read a little on here and some people don't suggest doing a trip on wvo without experience, So my questions are thus:

1) If I do a 2 ...

Is it possible to blend these two? Or if I am running a diesel/WMO out of one tank and switch over to WVO once heated, would there be any problems?

New to wvo with questions on blending and 2 tank systems

Hey everyone. I'm new here and very interested in using wvo to run a diesel.

I'm in the process of purchasing a 1969 FJ55 with a blown engine, which i will swap for a 4BT. I plan on putting an auxillary tank on it regardless, so had initially decided on a 2 tank set up, but honestly, I'm not crazy about the complexity of the systems i've seen. I want this car to be simple ...
