driving through Latin America on Veggie-oil!
to Michael Christian, Phil Sadow, Dave Murphey, Justin Young,
A big thanks to the Sepe Family for support and understanding!
Thanks also to Craig Reece at Neoteric Biofuels for the generous assistance and sales of necessary equipment for the conversion.
Thanks to Billy at Ace Auto Salvage for the two gas tanks.
Thanks to Heather Ford for video documentation.
We are running with a Vormax Fuel Filter, a 30amp Veg-Therm, and a Pollack 6-port motor driven valve. We mounted two 20-gallon gas tanks pulled from Jeep Cherrokees and placed them into a custom welded roof-rack, and joined them as one. We can also carry 17 5-gal carboys on the roof rack, for a total capacity of 125gallons!
In addition, I've installed a manual filter backflush option, a manual air purge valve just before the injectors, and a 3-port soleniod valve that allows me to loop the return line back into the engine to help conserve heated or or purge oil from the system rather than sending it to the diesel tank.

It's been a long tough process getting ready.... now read the journey as it unfolds!
