1997 F-250 7.3L powerstroke conversion (dual tanks)


I am about to pick up a 97 f-250 with the 7.3L powerstroke engine. I've been doing a bit of reading about heating external tanks with a heat exchanger, but can't seem to find any info on heating using the stock factory tank. Basically I would prefer to use one of the two tanks for WVO but am unsure of how best to heat the product. I also have a lot of questions about filtering WVO 'on the fly'. Like pull up to a nasty grease pit, pour in the waste oil, and be on my merry way. Anyone know if this is possible?

The reason I ask is I'm planning on taking the truck on an extended trip through mexico and central america this winter. If I could process WVO as I head south it would save a ton of dough.

All help is greatly appreciated!!!


Auxillary tank conversion

I have a 1993 Ford F-250 with the 7.3L IDI non-turbo engine. I want to use the auxillary tank for WVO. Does anybody know of a conversion kit that utilizes the factory auxillary tank and switch???

I think the stock steel tanks

I think the stock steel tanks are no good for veg oil. They decompose with veg oil in them. That's why they use either plastic, or more commonly, aluminum tanks.
The stock tank would probably work for a while. There are intank heaters you can get and fit in there.
