Default Next milestone.

I will be reaching the 466,000 mile mark on my truck soon. The significance of this is I converted my truck in 2006 with the V1 when I had 233,000 miles on it.
So at this milestone, I've been running it on oil half of it's life.
Pretty cool!

That is awesome! Not sure what kind of mileage you get, but I am guessing you have burned at least 15 thousand gallons of veg. 15 thousand gallons of diesel displaced at an overall low average of 3.00 per gallon, and I'd have to agree with Clay, you could justify a V4 upgrade

That is awesome Troy! You are a testament to the fact that these trucks can live a long, healthy life and that WVO doesn't 'mess that up'.

Keep up the good work!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh, and call me when ya get a minute.

Thanks guys. My truck has been awesome. No regrets from the minute we bought it new in Mar of 98. I would have never imagined that it would have lasted this long, much less run on grease from the moment I read an article in Popular Mechanics in my dentists office several months prior to buying a kit.
This site has been a valuable asset in helping me achieve those numbers getting there. I hope to be racking up a few more years and a lot more miles!!!!
Jason, I'll try calling tomorrow. Finishing up 15 12 hours nights in a row and was tied up most the night out here.
