Vegetable Oil Conversion:The conversion is based on a 2 micron filter/water separator that has a top loaded 150 watt heatingelement that automatically turns on when temperatures fall below 60F and turns off when the oil reaches 85F. This insures that theveg oil will flow through your filter no matter how cold it gets outside. The final heat stage comes from injector line heaters that getthe fuel nice and hot quickly. These heaters will get the fuel to 170F within 3 minutes and if you turn them on before you start thecar you will be insuring that hot oil is reaching the injectors right away. This will insure easy starts, even on cold mornings and alsoinsure proper and complete burning of the oil which is critical for the health of your engine. This is considered a temperate climatesingle tank conversion designed for Southern California.
