Eatwell Farm has been running its delivery truck on 100% pure recycled vegetable oil for 2 years now. last year we converted our irrigation pump to run on this also. Our tractor is under a lease so we cannot change that.
in the last two years the knowledge base about running engines on vegetable oil has increased dramatically. Last Friday Dale, our veggie oil guru, made a second upgrade to the truck system. He installed a fuel lift pump to help reduce the stress on our fuel injection pump when running on the oil and heaters on the fuel lines right at the injections. Both these improvements will ease the stress on the engine while running on vegetable oil.
