Hi, just following up:

Indeed the suction side of the fuel system wasn't completely air tight, I discovered small leaks on junctions. Temporary repairs stopped the jerking

can't you put some additive in the wvo or into your crankcase to prevent or dissolve that?

drain and filter that gelled used motor oil into 'black diesel' by mixing with a percentage of gasoline!

Hi, I'd like to give BITOG a little update on my WVO car.

I'm now at 276000 kilometers, and I've found the sweetest blend I'm running for a few tanks now :

87,59% WVO (used Risso Amphora Elite, which when virgin is a blend of palm oil, sunflower oil with high concentration of oleic acid, colza oil, canola oil w/ high oleic acid, and E900 antifoam)
12,17% Ethanol free, Unleaded low-sulfur Gasoline
0,24% Stanadyne Performance Formula

The Stanadyne helps from running right even on cold start up. I just need to floor it an crank for less 10 seconds (if the fuel system didn't drain) and it runs like a charm.

I plugged a bunch of fuel filters lately, supposedly from a bad oil batch (mixed the filtered and raw jugs when cleaning garden). It seems to be still processing crap from the tank, as I'm now changing a fuel filter every 2 months.

Well, given all the experiments I did with that fuel system, you can guess that pretty much all the seals are going crap. Most of them are 20 years old, I make drops on the floor when rolling, when I start in the morning I have to crank a lot to prime everything. I'm looking to change them all. Starting with the Bosch VE pump... and then the feed & return lines, up to the tank.

Do you have any advices regarding fuel lines and filter ? For simplicity I would keep stock, but the fittings here and there aren't twice the same, so maybe I should just keep the fuel filter box (that includes the push primer and the heat exchanger) and customise everything else (including filters before the OEM one) ?

Just off the top of my head, there are some very large diesel fuel filters that may allow you to run for an extended period of time without changing the filter so often. But it's always better to "refine" your fuel prior to dumping it into the fuel tank. I have a 0.5 micron "motorguard" air filter that works wonderfully with fuel. It can be converted to use a TP roll, so can be really cost effective. I've used it in a siphon to filter WMO for my Diesel Rabbit. Worked very well.
