    Re: Finnaly Blending

    Hi Tony,
    Unfortunately, when I did my tests they weren't done for publication (then, or later), so sadly my memory will have to suffice, as the results were written on the bench with welder's chalk....

    Re: Finnaly Blending

    Hi Guys,
    I don't want to be pedantic, but as I mentioned in another post,I did viscosity tests with svo/uvo and petrol. From memory I think that I was getting about ten seconds for 50mltrs ulp...
  4. Re: SOV but is there ANY reason you would not blend 5% ULP

    Hi Tony,
    Yeh I agree with the proportion thing, but I did do a lot of viscosity testing early on in the piece, and to get anywhere near a sensible reduction in viscosity, I needed about 30% petrol,...
  5. Re: SOV but is there ANY reason you would not blend 5% ULP

    Hi,
    The question was for ANY reason for NOT adding 5% petrol.

    Yup! waste of money.

    I used to blend 35ltrs dino, 35lts svo with 10% petrol. Stopped adding petrol, didn't make a damn's worth of...

    Hi Guys,

    This is not really a hyjack, though it may appear that way, just an interesting observation.

    Hi Jens,
    There's a whole lot of truth in the posts on this problem, however, there's one truth that seems to have been avoided, maybe because folks figure you might not want to hear it.

    Hi Peter,
    I realize that it's a long time since you posted this post, but would you be so kind as to elaborate on exactly how you're processing wvo to produce light fuels...... are you pyrolizing...
  11. Re: Engine rebuilder in northern NSW or SE Queensland

    Just as a point of interest, what's your oil pressure like when it's rumbling as opposed to when it's not. I wonder if the oil pump is the culprit (high revs coming up the hill might push the pump to...
  12. Re: Engine rebuilder in northern NSW or SE Queensland

    Hi Jens,

    Remember I commented about the noises comming out of your engine when you picked up the oil.
    That you got "within spec" compression results from a near knackered engine might not be...

    I looked into this some time back and you need a licence to carry more that 200ltrs.

    I know the owner of the chippie reasonably well, she gets her oil from "Cookers" and I'm fairly sure it's canola, so this might just be chicken fat.
