johned, re read what I said. In the first line I said "WVO will work as a fuel"
It is NOT a direct drop in replacement. As you have said, it must be handled a certain way or the suspended water will cause problems. That was what I was pointing out. I've talked to many that rushed out to burn straight WVO in their diesels only to ruin the motor because they didn't correctly prepare the WVO.
WVO's success depends on your criteria.
use as a direct drop in replacement for regular diesel - no
use as an alternative fuel with required additional end user processing - yes
use as an additive to regular diesel - only if properly processed.
cheaper than regular diesel - maybe, depends on how much free time you have & your ability to amortize the costs associated with the processing.
You won't find documented failures because those who have the capacity to accurately document their 'testing' typically are smart enough to do the proper processing.
BTW, All the ones I know that have used WVO & had failures won't admit it publicly. Be it from embarrassment or the vicious attacks from within the WVO community accusing them of various things like lying & planned sabotage.
The failures include gummed up motors, excessive carbon buildup in the exhaust, failed turbos, processing station fire, WVO spills in 'the good car', etc.
For those that missed the point,
I will do what I can to help anyone. That help includes assistance in making an informed decision. Once you have made the decision, I'll assist in what ever way I can to help you succeed. I will not try to sabotage your efforts by with holding information.
I do not find happiness in the failure of others that have made informed decisions.
However, I have been known to laugh at those who refuse to think . . . .
Jeremy, Maybe you & I need the same glasses. I came to similar conclusions.
Kinda makes you wonder about the concept some have concerning reading comprehension . . .
