Right now, I expect to be available to work on this project anytime from Mid-September to Mid-October (during the sign of Libra, I guess). I expect it to take a week to complete properly. I would work on any kind of diesel engine, car, truck, tractor, whatever, I just want to start gaining experience.
I've been reading a lot about these conversions, which heat waste veggie oil (WVO) until it is viscous enough to be burned as diesel or bio-diesel would be in the engine. I would probably base the conversion on the Greasel.com system, which has a proven track-record. Except I think I can save some money in a few key areas, and get the oil hotter than the stock system. Of course, I'd be willing to work with the interests and financial constraints of the donor engine's owner. I'd also be willing to help source local oil supplies and paint the car to reflect its new status.
We could make it a workshop if others are interested in participating. Ultimately I would like to start an/work with an alternative fuels co-op in the region, but I need experience first.
Please write an email if you're at all interested in offering your vehicle for conversion, or if you would like to participate in a workshop (should they be available).
