  1. Re: Mazda Bravo / Ford Courier 2.5 Turbodiesel Tips n Tricks

    I hope it is just a thing with the old IP Tony and that the new IP will fix it. 70% seems a bit on the thinner side and of course means more misfuel to be collected and filtered.

    Great news that you have a solution to go back to each time to get back to 100% power.

    With your experience Tony, I'm sure you can now refine the process to find the sweet spot.

    Hi Tony,

    Why not try draining the blend out and going back to diesel or bio until you can isolate the exact issue?

    1. turn the adjuster 3 turns CCW
    2. tighten everything back up
    3. start the engine and listen for noise

    Re: IP Adjustments

    Can I just ask. When you say "loosened", can you just loosen the mounting bolt or do you need to remove it and the 4 bolts mentioned in the manual?

    Thanks Tony,

    Have you heard of the old issues of ring coking coming up with blending?

    Waste Oil Market Cornered?

    It seems everywhere I look lately WVO is collected by large scale "free" commercial operators.

    The blue '44 brigade.

    You would create a massive vacuum under the fat block as you try and pull it up. This may break the handle off. If I was going to do this, I would make sure the drum had some sort of plug near the...
