    Vehicles converted and successfully running on WVO

    Let's start a list of vehicles converted and successfully running on WVO.
    Then anyone interested can look at the list and tell if their vehicle has been done before or if they don't have a vehicle already they can look at the list to help decide what to get.
    I'll start with my vehicle and let others add.
    Let's keepit in alphabetical order, at least regarding the vehicle make.

    A good idea. Once you get a good list assembled, I can clean up the thread and make it a sticky.

    Re: Vehicles converted and successfully running on WVO

    Hi all,

    just finished my 1980 Toyota HJ45 Troopcarrier 3.6 litre, idi, non/turbo, conversion on 18/01/08.

    I have been making test batches of bio-deisel since 2006 before changing to svo in 2007.

    Filter my wvo by upflow system and final 2 micron filter. Incorperating a new oil drying system shortly.

    Troopy conversion details refer to thread HJ45 Troopy.
