Default New greaser

My name is Eric and after buying a 2003 F250 and a 2005 Excursion, both with the 6.0L diesel in them. The F250 is a work horse that runs like a raped ape, while the Excursion hauls around my budding family. I am saving the money to buy the V4 systems for both vehicles. The problem arises that with a family of an amazing wife who has blessed me with a five, three and one year old, money to spend on my projects is rare to come buy. However once I drop the hammer, install the systems and collect/clean the oil, money starts coming in; instead of going into vehicles, they will actually save me money.

Glad to finally pop my cherry after being a lurker for so long.

Looking forward to installing the needed parts and I can ask really dumb questions without being judged by people I interact with on a daily basis.

A large part of me wants to run my F250 with a twin-turbo setup; but can I justify the cost while not pulling the cab?

Of course I say "Yes I can, oh yes I can" yet my wife will say

Thanks Clay and hopefully I can help those on these boards too!

skyskijason, you need to go roughly three hundred and fifty miles to the west ; )

Default Hi

Hello, Iíve had a 03 6.0 for just over a year now and I would like to stop feeding American dollars to the Middle East and cut back on spending. That is why Iím here. Iíd like to pick some brains and figure out the best way to get my truck burning wvo with a dual tank setup. V3 is my number one choice right now, just saving currently until I find out some more information.

The v3/v4 is your best bet and the 03 6.0 is a great candidate.

I figured the vegistroke was the best option. This seems to be the best option for burning oil. My main concern is collecting good oil and filtering it correctly

That's the key to success.

Default getting setup

Eric,
honestly I just dumped like 10k on the credit card to get me going. got the system, tank, a tent garage, purification system in a box, and some pumps and other things to move the oil around. I was spending 350-450 a month on diesel in summer of '14 and went down to 50-65 every month to month and a half. the money I saved has since paid off the investment on the system and it only took about 2 years. been going since august '14 and still going strong.

What all did you use to get going? Vegiram? Do you use a centrifuge like most others? I donít know what the best products to use are. Thereís a guy who has everything to store and make good oil (fuge, tanks, 2000 gallons of oil) but I donít know how to put a price on this stuff so I havenít made a move yet. This guy has pretty much everything except the fuel system to put on my truck. He had a 7.3 and I have a 6.0 so I dunno compatability there.
Sucks though. Iím supposed to go on vacation here pretty soon and it will be a 2500 mile drive there and back and driving around and Iím taking the focus because fueling the truck would kill me. Wish I would have gotten on here sooner.
