The above is blatant advertising, and yet almost COMPLETELY ON TOPIC.

Georges, if you would care to share more info on those generators, please do, but try to keep it on the informational side.

SVO/WVO generators might make a good thread all by themselves in the scope of use for serial hybrids that don't use any gasoline!

wvo generators

I have available all the informations concerning those Generators,
they are imported and follows the regulations of EPA standards.
I am in the wvo collection business and I also sell cooking oil to restaurants,
additionally, I am supplying those generators to some business that not only use
a cheap alternative way to produce there own electricity but that are selling
back power to the electric companies via net metering.
I am also planting jatropha in Haiti with the purpose to bring the oil in the
US to be used in the generation of power or to make biodiesel, the task is long
because I have 21,000 hectares available to me.

Feel free to ask any questions.

Sad to say he's been banned - far too spammy in recent posts. (Why post about biodiesel cook stoves on EcoModder? That's pushing the limit.)

well, you would get a better fit and more power with a stock VW diesel engine and at a lower cost, if you want to cut out the rear of the beetle and make a new rear bumper you can even get a vw diesel to fit in the beetle, after all it will bolt right up to the tranny, the Kubota diesel engine would need an adapter plate made.

According to Wikipedia,
Volkswagen Caddy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

It lists 1.5L diesel engine in 1980. Too bad the engine is blown. I would love to convert a VW pickup to veggie-oil!!!!!


Now I am not much of a mechanic BUT is there some chance that this "blown" engine might be not too difficult to fix? Isn't there a frost plug or something that is supposed to pop out if the engine freezes?
Vw caddys are sweet and bring a premium price on ebay I have an 81 rabbit that has a 1500 engine with the head off then i have a head that i bought on ebay. I know tons of repair tricks as ive worked on vw diesels in the past. If you buy that thing I would be willing to try to help you out with tips and tricks that can help revive that old beast. Also I would suggest reading From the fryer to the fuel tank by Joshua Tickell. That would help you to get on track to converting it to a veggiewagen
