Well, it's official. I'm hugging trees as my would say. I was at a show this past weekend down home (my home town). I had taekn several cubbies of oil with me. Burned dino fuel all weekend to and from as well as hauling tractors. On the trip back home I ran about a 50/50 mix in the tank. Ol' Dodge Cummins seems to run just fine on it so far. I'm going to add more WVO to the tank tomorrow and see what happens. I need to make some improvements to the filtering system, but I think it is going to work. Truck smells different too Very Happy

Joe, I'm running a 50/50 WVO and dino in a 85 ranger diesel. It just loves it. Smile Running 100% in my 855 John deere (the one we loaded your trailer with) . Runs great, just get hungry for a fish dinner when using it. Rolling Eyes I'll take it to the 50/50 this winter to help with starting on those 0 days when I need it to move snow. A friend in NC makes it. I got a drum from him this spring and need to go back to see him as it's almost all gone.

I'm probably going to slide to about 75 or 80% veggie oil as soon as I get my filter's figgured out. Plus we are going to be frying more fish at church soon, so my supply will go back up.........
