well yesterday and the day before i managed to get the fuel switching valves in the supply and return lines and bleed the system of air.. so its ready for some wiring and then the hose in hose to the tank in the bed, the tank is a very very big beer cooler, about 30-35 gallon size, nicely insulated and its white to match the truck. I did the same idea on my 300d benz and it works for a veggie tank, keeps the heat for over a day .. and its super cheap also , got this huge cooler for $57 new.

Ill get some images posted here this weekend of where I'm at on the project. But its slow going the "projects fund" is a bit dry. so its go as i get cash to do it. Well slow in my book , my 300d conversion took a whopping 5 hours my first conversion took weeks as I was learning everything including how diesels are setup.. that was my first diesel vehicle.

Ive been driving the 300d here lately.. its even cheaper to drive than the crx at 53mpg. My veggie oil costs are about 20 cents a gallon for filters and energy used to filter it.
