Well the ol' WVO burner finally stopped working

Well it's sad to say but it's been so quiet on here I thought I'd post an update on the WVO burner. Unfortunately it's finally stopped working and has been collecting dust. Sad but true... On the bright side the new company truck with fuel card is running great! Thought about selling the ol' first gen but it's still fun to drive around once in awhile and watch the drivers behind me suddenly get burger joint cravings and pull off at the nearest Burger King. Gotta love running WVO.

I quit using WVO from the bakery. Worried about what the sugar from the pastries was doing. Besides, I didn't like having the cops following me around. Now it's just bunny huggers.

Bakeries usually use partially hydrated oils anyways. What is a bunny hugger? Only problem I have ever had with my WVO system is the 3 way valve for the return line crapped out on me and filled my diesel tank with WVO. Luckily it didn't happen in the middle of winter... EHCOTECH (on ebag) sells a stainless 3 way ball valve that looks significantly more durable for about $85 ea. Anyone with a home made system should have a couple of these as spares.
