After Getting a diesel car to to burn vegetable oil, I for an cheap way to do it that would my driving needs,I have a commute to and from work of 5.3 The diesel car I purchased was a 1981 VW 1.6 liter diesel 4 cylinder.

I with a single tank I have not run the car on straight vegetable oil My source of used canola oil and I have not been able to it but I am working on it and besides it is starting to down even in the central of California. I will probably be a 40/60 mix during the winter and if it gets cold this maybe 25/75.

The single system I put togather is a manual system with illumuniated switches ((1) red) filter heater 100 watts, green) tank heater 80 ((3) blue) injector heaters 80 watts.

I don’t use any heat from the cooling system to heat the oil.

I have driven it for a on a 50/50 mix, and today I the tank heater. While it I noticed that the braided lines looked wet so looks I will be replacing fuel tomorrow.

I replaced the fuel today 10/4/2006 wasn’t as as I thought it would be. The only part was draining the tank, I had filled it with 5 gallons of oil and 2.5 gallons of diesel which me a full tank. As luck have it a previous owner had put an syphon thing in the tank so I had to drain in by way of one of the fuel lines. I set an 5 gallon gas can(painted green for under the disconnected line and let it up, then reconnected the line, oil/diesel mix to another gas/diesel can set the empty can back under the car to get the

The rest was easy just the hose to length installing and tightening them.Then I put the fuel mix into the car.

Total of the conversion so far injector line $29 fuel filter heater $26 heater $60, switches wire $10, Silicone $43, new fuel hose injector lines (set) connectors $10= $229

I I a block heater on order and a gauge on order which I include in this cost are approx $65 more. Then I be adding some insulation to the lines and the fuel tank.

My collection system is with 5 cubes, my filtering system with prefiltering through two fry oil then it is pumped though a GE Water water filter micron filter. For my fuel system I have a 12 volt pump with a 1 micron Microglass filter as the final before entering the tank. The 12 pump also is used for the GE Water water filter I am using.

The car runs fine, it is cold blooded when I follow my starting procedure of 2 minutes after turning on the filter and injector line to start the car.

I bought a BBQ Themometer with Remote to check on the injector line to see how long I need to wait they get to a certain temperature, degrees f. This is just until I figure out the right of time to wait.

10/10/06 was the first day I ran an almost vegetable oil mixture in my car It is a harder to now. I think I just to get a procedure down to where it start. But with fall us I will be using a mixture on oil and diesel.

10/11/06 had a fuel traced it to a return line had come off, so it was an easy the leak was hard to track because it didn’t smell diesel or vegetable oil which it installed a block heater a heater had to jb weld it on to block it holds we shall see.

Car was very hard to start morning but once started it ran Got a Heavy duty Timer set it up to on the block heater for 1/2 a hour I go to work I will see if That do the job, I also filled the with diesel. so I am back at a 50 /50 mix I need to get my final filter set up so I can use the oil I have been collecting.

In the image below you can see the blue fuel line i installed, the line heaters, and the fuel heater, the the wiring is still a bit but it works.

10-14-06The place I was to be getting my canola oil from at was open today, first I have seen the place in 2 months.I went in and talked to the about getting his waste he is more concerned about the waste oil out of his store, and right now the way he sees is to countinue using the service. he did tell me to come next week. I will a better plan and a way to collect the oil on
