My Name is Jeff
My project / idea is to finalize my R&D to produce a WVO (Waste Vegtable oil) system that anyone can use. Assembling with common off the shelf componets, it could be a " Do-it-yourself " or purchased as a kit. I know many people play with WVO systems, but many are used towards Bio-diesel type applications. Mine is just a straight foward filter system and used with mixing in the tank with standard diesel fuel. I am using my 2004 F-250 with the 6.0 diesel motor as my test subject and proof of concept. My F-250 is factory stock. NO chip, NO add-ons. I purchased my truck in OCT 11 with 33k miles ( yes I know, extremly low milage), and as of today 1 Sept 12 I am just under 50k miles. I do alot of driving in connection with my work, and by being able to use up to 50% WVO I am attempting to cut down on my fuel cost. I would like to finallize my ideas into a as-compact-as-possible system that could be marketed to the masses as a simple way to cut fuel cost without having to deal with alot of chemicals and hassle of disposing of left-overs.
