    Re: diesel bug

    Thanks, Alga, do you know if biodiesel kills the bug or makes it worse? I replaced the intake prefilter this time rather than just cleaning it. I also bought some biocide which I'm hoping will help.

    Re: Blending WVO with Biodiesel

    Hi, Tilly, have you advanced the injection timing on your Musso? I would think it would help with the cold start, as well as give you a performance bost.
