  1. Re: Blending Diesel with Filtered Vegetable Oil?

  5. Re: Outstanding pre-filter performance

    Even better when you change and clean them, ready for reinstallation!
  6. Re: Outstanding pre-filter performance

    It looks like there is no problem in the tank if that is all it caught in "how long?"
    The correct prefilter for the Mercedes diesels (that you have used) is very strong and has done a sterling job...

  10. 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.

    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...

    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...
  16. Re: After 15 years decided to start washing my biodiesel

  18. 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.
