Default New in Chicago Suburbs

Hey all!

I've been interested in the wvo concept for quite some time and 2012 is the year I'll be making the leap. I'll be looking to purchase and convert (or buy with kit) a vehicle by spring and start the journey.

I'm in the NW suburbs of Chicago and would love to start making connections in the area.

This forum is a great resource. Thanks to you all for your generous participation!

Hi All,
I'm new to the forum, been lurking in the shadows for some time. Now I have a V3 to call my own and thought I would now sign up and start talking. I live in St Louis, would love to meet anyone here in town and talk Veg! Lots of good info on the forum, people seem very friendly as well. Looking forward to making some friends!!!

Thanks, Veggi X

Hello all
I am seriously considering doing a conversion as the cost of running both my old oilburners is stretching the budget these days. I currently have a 99TDI Jetta and a 95 7.3l, both about to roll 400000km(250k mi). I live in New Brunswick, Canada, diesel went to $1.41 per litre($5 plus gal)
Been checking out a bunch of forums and other stuff, and i think i have a grasp of this stuff, but lots of questions!
I want to run the truck on wvo, as I am going to be using it for work, try and keep costs down. It would be nice to hear from others up this way, see how they did it, Im concerned about import duties from the states, and the available stuff up here. Glad I found this site, lots to learn here!

welcome to the forum! your in the right place. For a 7.3 you simply cannot get a better kit than the DFA. We have a few Canadian members that will be helpful. First step is to be sure oil is available for collection where you live.

IMHO, the tdi, go bio, or a combo of bio and conversion kit for winter. They can run wvo just fine, but in the really cold areas they don't retain heat very well. This is onfo I gathered from a member, vegginpsd. she has a lot of tdi expirirence and can get you pointed in the right direction.
