  2. Re: Anyone have experience with this pump?

    Tilly, I just found one for $32.39 with local stock and 1 week delivery. They look good and I look forward to more easily moving my oil.
    Thanks for sharing.

    It is unlikely that you will get a response to your request from this forum, as most members here are based in Australia.
  4. Don't dump Biodiesel byproduct in the bush, Especially in a water catchment!

    A BEDFORDALE man’s reasoning that biodiesel waste was “good for the trees” was not enough to avoid a spent conviction and $1500 fine in the Armadale Magistrates Court.

    Sticky: Re: What I saw on ebay

    But that price does not give you a working system. It will not have the controller, so it will need to be manually operated.

    Re: tank filled with black gloop

    Don't worry, the problem happens with petrol and diesel fueled vehicles too.
    Yes, drop the tank, pressure / steam clean it and dry with metho. Pour a litre of metho into the tank, swill it around...

    Ssangyong did produce a common rail diesel engine, but not in the Musso.
  8. Re: Ssangyong Musso 2.9 diesel 1998 with SVO conversion

    Penangke, yes, exactly as I wrote it.
    I bought it in July last year with no working GPs.
    After replacing all GPs, all fluids and filters it is not a reliable workhorse. I have had to replace fuel...
  9. Re: Ssangyong Musso 2.9 diesel 1998 with SVO conversion

    Jim,
    Have a look on Gumtree. There are plenty of Mussos on there. The Turbodiesel was introduced around 2000 IIRC. I have one running veggie oil, unconverted. I add up to 20% ULP for Winter, no...
  10. Re: After 15 years decided to start washing my biodiesel

    My vehicles all have inline IPs, so can't provide personal experience on the use of the blend in rotary IPs, yet others here have used blends. Others have told me they use a WVO / ULP blend with no...

    Re: Generator question

    Have you tried running the pumps without the charger running? Will the gennie run them happily? It could be a high start current causing the gennie to bog down.
    Yes, using a number of loads to...
  12. Re: After 15 years decided to start washing my biodiesel

    While your IP is most likely a Rotary IP, with the injector pipes coming from the back of the IP, it should be happy with straight veggie or a veggie / petrol blend.
    Why not just run it on used...

    Re: Kits by grease car

  20. Re: how to clean dirty oil containers

  22. Re: Filter blocking in less than 100k

    Unfortunately, the way it is written, it is confusing. If it is not looped, you will get hot fuel returning to the tank.
  23. Re: Filter blocking in less than 100k

    grytvikken,
    1. If the tank was left for 3 months, it may have succumbed to some microbial activity, causing the issues you are now having. Alga's advice is spot on, if leaving the vehicle for a long...

    Re: Glycerol composition.

    Less byproduct may indicate greater yield, but what about quality?
    Byproduct = Glycerol, soaps, residual methanol, unused caustic, water (from the reaction) and other contaminants in the oil.
