Robust 1991 F350 single cab 4x4 with only 56,000 miles. The engine runs like new!. She is smooth on the highway and I am sure she will be at home off road if need be. She burns no oil-no blowby. The 5speed manual tranny allows low RPM cruising. The seat and glass are excellent, there are no cracks on the dash. Body is tight and straight-no rust! AC is all there but does not kick in.
I recently purchased a 1994 2500 dodge diesel. I would like to find a starting point for information that would help me convert to WVO, or biodiesel if necessary. I would be interested in a kit, but would also would lean more towards personal installation/fabrication. What are the basic requirements and decisions i will have to make as I get bombarded with info, and opinions.
I own a 1994 isuzu npr with 115,000 miles on it. I bought it back in 2001 and it had 110,000 on it when i got it. I drove it from 01-05 not much and let it sit for 2 yrs but would start it and drive it down the street every 3-months.
I have since been driving it again from feb 08 till now. It runs awesome turbo works great, but I cant seem to get better than 12mpg and thats never breaking 55mph either if i do im about 11mpg, it will hit 75mph. I would love to get 15mpg+ any suggestions??? I did notice a small black ring on the out side of my exhaust tip like carbon bild up!
I'm a beginner at conversions and cars in general, but I'm looking to convert a car to diesel as sort of a summer project. I turn 15 this summer and get my permit and I really wanted to skip the whole $3.25 / gallon of gas/diesel deal and go straight to W.V.O. I have my parents permission to do this conversion as long as if it doesn't work out i have to pay the diesel prices. I have several questions/concerns that i need to have answered before i begin this:
A fine example of the venerable 123 Chassis Mercedes diesel Sedan with the om617 five cylinder turbo diesel that is green fuel fiendly. These engines routinely give in excess of 500,000 miles. The body is straight, no rust, and still shows the clear coat(tree shadow on car in photo). Interior is presentable
Recently replaced the right rear axle and brake pads and caliper on all 4 wheels. Good tires. Strong runner. Smooth tranny. Low miles 98K. Maintenance records. Becker radio. Texas car. Third Owner.
I am considering buying a large 4x4 diesel and converting to run on WVO, to be used mainly for towing and cross country trips. I was wondering what types of MPG people are getting from WVO on the larger truck engines (mainly for planning purposes, i.e. WVO fuel storage, miles b/w stops, etc)?
