    I am still running a 50% blend of 1 micron filtered used cooking oil to diesel.
    I am doing a fuel mileage run, but it may take months, due to the size of the fuel tank (180L)
    Only done about 350km since purchase on 22/7/22.

    All running well at this stage.
    Life is a journey, with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, experiences to enjoy.

    Current Vehicles in stable:
    '06 Musso Sports 4X4 Manual Crew Cab tray back.
    '04 Rexton 4X4 Automatic SUV
    '2014 Toyota Prius (on ULP) - Wife's car

    Previous Vehicles:
    '90 Mazda Capella. (2000 - 2003) My first Fatmobile. Converted to fun on veggie oil with a 2 tank setup.
    '80 Mercedes 300D. 2 tank conversion [Sold]
    '84 Mercedes 300D. 1 tank, no conversion. Replaced engine with rebuilt OM617A turbodiesel engine. Finally had good power. Engine donor for W123 coupe. (body parted out and carcass sold for scrap.)

    '99 Mercedes W202 C250 Turbodiesel (my darling Wife's car)[sold]

      SVO No blends as stated in the previous post, Start on Diesel, preheat Veggie oil through an BA falcon Automatic transmission cooler, Switch over to straight veg oil, switch back over 5km before stopping. Also running a return solenoid to redirect to correct tank.

        I am having a minor irregular idle issue with the Prado.
        The idle is set to 750RPM and in gear, the idle is a biy "lumpy" unless I rest my foot on the accelerator pedal and increase the ide to 800 RPM, when it is nice and smooth again.
        I will see if my mechanic can raise the idle to 800 RPM and continue the test.
