What's the ruble conversion rate?

Today, 30.2 Russian Rouble = 1.034652 US Dollar. That's probably per Liter as well, 1 L = 0.26 gallons, so the price is roughly $4 / gal.

Interesting range of octane ratings.

Not sure if that is R+M/2 or not but most of Europe uses RON #'s only.

I remember last time gas hit almost $5 a gallon. There was a noticeable drop in traffic on my commute. Plus there was a very noticeable increase in ridership on the trains.

Still happily running WVO in the diesel. My fuel costs are LOW.


Then again... That's just me.

Yeah, but dont you have to do install some sort of conversion kit on the motor and the collect, filter, and process the waste oil?

Who sells filtered and fuel ready waste oil and what's the going price per gallon?

Yes. I installed the hardware. Basically a tank with heated lines, solenoids to switch back and forth, a heat exchanger to get the oil extra hot before entering the stock system, and gauges to monitor the VO system.

I collect the oil from my friends restaurant. Heat and filter the oil. Add a biocide and store in 55 gallon drums until needed.

It's some extra work. But my fuel costs are very low. Not to mention MUCH less pollution from my vehicle.

There are companies that sell filtered WVO ready to go. But they are generally more expensive than diesel prices. You always pay more for convenience.

It's certainly not for everyone. But it's worked well for me. I've saved enough in fuel to pay for the hardware and time many many times over.

Interesting. What did that setup cost? We have two CUCV's (military diesel trucks) with the stock 6.2L non-turbo engines, and diesel is running over $4/gal out here...

I'm also interested in this info.
Whats your average MPG also, and how much do you spend to prepare the oil for use in the vehicle.

Google "WVO" if you are truly interested in learning more.

I will say this. The hardest part is securing a source of oil. If you don't have a good source of vegetable oil then the rest is pointless.

Good luck finding a source right now. Valley proteins has the area on lock down. Plus once fuel prices go up everyone and their mom starts trying WVO.

Can you switch back and forth between Diesel and WVO or do you have to have separate tanks and fuel lines?

There was a ring of Asian guys stealing waste oil from local restaurants a few months ago. They would pull up with a pumper truck and suck the waste tanks dry, then drive off to New York/New Jersey I believe and re-sell it.

Never knew stealing waste was an arrestable offense.

Friend of mine has a "greasecar" conversion on his truck. He has a friend with a chinese restaurant. Takes the oil from there. Apparently, his friend was, at one time, PAYING for waste oil removal. My buddy comes and gets it.


I would agree with the above advice: Make sure you have a good reliable source of WVO before you do something like this.
