  1. Re: looking at converting my 2002 Landcruiser with 1HZ engine to WVO

    Mark, I have been using Blended WVO in a 1 tank system without heating or flushing the system for over 6 years with no impact on the engines of the cars I have had in that time.
    Try 10% ULP in your...
  2. Re: looking at converting my 2002 Landcruiser with 1HZ engine to WVO

    Paul,
    The simplest, cheapest option is to run a blend of 10%ULP and 90% veggie oil.
    This will happily run in your vehicle with no problems (once you get rid of the diesel bugs in the tanks)
    I...
  3. Re: Stock 92 hilux diesel heater suitable for heating SVO?

    If it is anything like the ones Mercedes use in cold climates then it should do the job admirably.
    Are you planning to use a 2 tank system with C/O valves?

    You may wish to consider using a blend...
  4. Re: looking at converting my 2002 Landcruiser with 1HZ engine to WVO

    Paul, Welcome to the forum.
    I recommend that you source the components yourself.
    As you already have 2 tanks, you need to identify how they are configured. Is the return line switched so that...

    Re: Musso Fuel Gauge stuck at 3/4 tank

    Perhaps a change was made by the Koreans to overcome the correct situation that Mercedes designed , which prevented this item to be serviced without significant dismantling of the cooling system.

    Re: Musso Fuel Gauge stuck at 3/4 tank

    On my wife's C250 (OM605) I had to cut the bottom bolt off to remove it. I replaced it with a shorter bolt (probably the PO did this already on your Musso)
  10. Re: For Sale: W210 E300 Merc with OM606 engine

    The issue with later OM 600 engine is that it is likely to have engine computer controls. They also have O-rings in fuel system which are not compatible with renewable fuels.
    If your engine is...

    Re: Been away - what's changed?

    Chev28, I have asked on another forum that I occasionally visit, whether any members have had coking issues when using WVO fuel blends.
    I will report back on any comments I get.

    Re: Been away - what's changed?

    Chev28
    I do not have any supplemental heating in the Musso (or in the 300D Turbodiesel that was my last Mercedes.)
    I have not heard of ring coking at all from people using blended fuels.
    That...

    Re: Been away - what's changed?

    My last 2 tank conversion was 10 years ago on a W123 300D. My wife's W124 300D ran a blend of 10% ULP, but used the fuel heater that is part of that vehicle's fuel system.
    My current vehicle (Musso...

    Yes, that has been known for many years that, providing you get a good mix, you can make quality biodiesel at temperatures of 25C and lower. It just takes time. Mixing for longer is likely to be...

    Go to the small, out of the way, places. You may have better success in those locations.

    Re: Been away - what's changed?

    Chev,
    Welcome back.
    Not much has changed, fewer of us posting. Tilly still is picky about unsubstantiated claims made by forum members. More people using WVO in blends rather then 2 tank or...

    I agree with Tilly, You need to have mileage and litres of fuel used to make a meaningful comparison for fuel economy tests. Use the same route under the same conditions. You could use a container of...

    The fact that the low fuel lamp is working indicates that the...

    Musso Fuel Gauge stuck at 3/4 tank

    I know a few of you have Musso Sports (LOL) 2.9 L turbodiesel vehicles.
    The fuel gauge on mine had always been slow to change (I could go 100km before it got from empty to full after refueling), but...
