    Drove up to Sydney on my 36% blend and it went like a rocket.

    Added another 20L veg + 15L bio when I got up there and drove back on that - went...

    I’ve added my 1st 20L and so far so good after 200km. The pre-filter still nice and clean.

    Gotta drive up to...

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    Hi Fattima,

    Is your factory sediment a stand-alone unit without the filter? So the fuel comes from your tank to the sediment / water trap, then to the pre-filter then to the main filter, then to...

    Hi Tony,
