    Re: Adelaide to Darwin on WVO July 2020

    Tony the original pump did a similar thing, it was pretty dirty when I took it apart, had the layer of brown gunk on every surface. Also the rollers were a bit corroded, got new ones for $80. Didn’t...
  2. Re: Musso / Rexton 2.9L Turbodiesel Injector Pump fault

    Tony I reckon this is not the first time you’ve fixed a car fault by buying another car. I’m not sure where you have the greatest skills, fixing cars or buying bargains. If you want to get out of...

    Tony can you put the new wrong one in a lathe and turn a groove for an O ring? If you can’t get the right one that is.

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    Why don’t you just convert the Rodeo to a 2 tank system Ethan? Lot less work than making bio all the time.

    Re: 1st time WVO blending

    I get the Goss hose from Sprint. Started off at $6/ m but is about $11 now
    For clamps avoid the worm drive radiator hose type clamps, they just don’t work well at small sizes. I use the ones with a...

    Fuel hose
    I used to get plain old stuff, it swelled, got sticky, then leaked, barely lasted a year. Then I tried Goss fuel injection hose. Lasts at least 3 years then slowly goes a little bit...

    Re: Adelaide to Darwin on WVO July 2020

    Took assembled pump to diesel shop who checked it over then put it on test bench and set it up. That cost $550 but we did save $1500 on diesel on just the recent trip, so still in front. Removed old...

    Re: Adelaide to Darwin on WVO July 2020

    Re: Adelaide to Darwin on WVO July 2020

    We are currently travelling to Mataranka from Adelaide towing a camper with 2 others using dino. 2900ks so far on oil, picked up some at Alice. Hard to get good stuff.

    Re: To convert or not

    Single tank? So I presume you can use dino or vege oil, but not both. Doesn’t sound like value for money at $1500. Or am I missing something?

    Re: 2006 VW Jetta 2.0 tdi

    No I don't but the Gen4 Passat should have PumpeDuse injectors which should be be more forgiving of less than perfect fuel than common rail.

    Re: Collecting fuel on the move

    Yep that's the pump to get. Go to Pirtek or similar shop and buy some 13mm hose barbs as the ones supplied are too small for common hose like garden hose.
