Talking Glad to be here from Arkansas High MPG Mods & Inventions

Glad I found this site I was doing a modification and a search turned this up. Wow I'm doing already almost everything here for MPG and more. I can share some ideas and inventions. I hope to learn more I get 50MPG highway 37MPG town, 95 Neon automatic, and I have just scratched the surface.

Where are you at in AR? I'm in the Memphis, TN area. Passionate about diesel engines, and love to make quality fuel.

I have about 500 gallons of oil that's been sitting for a couple of years. I took a sample and made a liter. I used the 80/20 method and it converted well. I will be making fuel in the fall when business slows down. I need to react my oil before it goes bad.

I've been collecting some diesel engines over the past few months. An 8KW genset is in the works. I have 2 engines I want to use in conversions. I'm looking at some Yanmars too. I found a couple of fellows with over 200 engines in various conditions ranging from used runners, Part engines, cores, to new freight damaged. The latter need simple repairs, like crushed injector lines replaced. Valve covers with punctures, cracked covers that need to be welded.

In order to get the best deal, buying 8-10 units is the way to go. I'm collecting diagnostic tools necessary to evaluate the engine's performance. The pics I've seen are of very beautiful tier 4 16 valve turbo diesels. Enough rambling for now.
