I am going to play devil's advocate here.  Knowing what WVO will do to rubber fuel lines, I have asked myself a question.  What is it doing to the orings and seals internally.  Luvrbus presented that question sometime back and it has bothered me ever since.  So what are we doing to the fuel pump seals?  What are we doing to the other seals?  I have had zero issues but if we do, it is going to be pretty derned expensive just to tow it to the shop, then we are really going to feel it when we pay for new seals in the internal engine.  You might as well pull the engine and do frame off work.

I did not realize you were processing on the road.  You are definately going to need a centrifuge.

That is correct.

I found a pic of yours with all your WVO stuff mounted above the engine. Love it! Stealing the idea!  ;D

I mounted the valves, fuses flat bar heater and a filter to that angle frame.  That angle iron was recovered from an old bedframe.   ;D

I'll post it here so folks can see what we are yapping about.
