Default Hello from Texas

Hi Everyone we are a commercial power washing firm out of Lubbock, Texas and are planning on taking the plunge into Biodiesel production and implementation into our fleet in the coming months! We plan on using bio in our 7.3 powerstrokes, generators and in the diesel heaters of our power washer. Any useful information you veteran bio guys could offer us on any of these applications would be more than appreciated. We look forward to getting to know everyone and reading some of the great info posted here!

Exclamation Phila-ware

Hi everyone -

My name is Jacob Borden. For full disclosure, Jason Borden (owner of BFT) is my brother.

I am a professor of chemical engineering in the Philadelphia / Delaware area, and I would love to expose some of my students to a working conversion system. If anyone might be interested in stopping by campus (Widener University, Chester, PA) for an afternoon of show-and-tell, I would very much appreciate it!

You can reach me at:
jrborden@mail.widener.edu
or
773-851-3060

Thanks in advance.

Jacob

Hi Jacob. I'll pass your contact info to our veggie friends in that area who don't come here - and we have a couple of guys here that aren't too far away.

I'll be in touch. I live in South Jersey and Chester is only a 30 minute ride for me.

Default Please advise

Hi guys,

I'm Barry
I'm in Houston Texas
I recently bought a 97 f350 4-door 4x4.
The truck is in great condition inside and out.
The odometer reads 92000 miles.
I do have a slow leak up on top near the turbo.
I plan to repair that leak when I upgrade my intake and exhaust and install a vo kit in the near future.
I would really appreciate a comprehensive list of recommended vo friendly upgrades as well as any vo system recommendations.
I would also like to upgrade fuel capacity without losing bed space or juggling my spare tire.
That might just be wishful thinking.

Thanks in advance

Hi Barry, welcome to the forum! Sounds like a nice truck!

Check out Vandy's recent V4 system install in a truck like yours.

And as a matter of fact there IS a fuel tank option for your application! I designed it for wyomingowen's OBS truck. It should yield over 30gals useable capacity and replaces the factory rear tank and spare tire (you can always relocate the spare if its in the way in the bed - unlike your veggie tank if it was in there!). This tank is available, but requires some cutting and welding to install. Here's a caption from a thread I posted about it.

The cross member was cut so the tank could be installed with the fuel and coolant lines attached.



This angle was bolted in to replace the cross member.





The tank straps were not tight yet in these pics. Threadlocker was applied and these bolts were double-nutted. (remember Rish!!)

Hey Barry

1st off that sounds like a Horrible choice of trucks to convert. Luckily I'm close by so I can come take it off your hands.

I'd start a build thread in the obs section so we don't clutter this one.

Welcome to your new addiction
