Default Another newbie virgin know nothing. . .

Hey guys,

Just joining up to start the research. My long term plan and hope is to have a 7.3 Excursion running on WVO or WMO. I have and endless amount of space to process oil but I'm concerned about temperature issues.

It's COLD here in the winter. . . so that's going to be my hurdle to overcome.

I've got lots of learing to do! I'm a forum junkie so I'll probably be searching for a while before I post anything.

If you have links to any good "where to start" threads, I'd appreciate any help.

I am in Canada... Just south of Edmonton, Alberta. So, this whole Vegistroke thing is cool at -40? If I've got totes full of unfiltered oil, I'm guessing it's pretty thick when it's really cold.

Like I said, still lots to learn. Got a link for said Ex?

*EDIT - Found it... The lack of a transfer case makes it pretty much useless in this part of the world.

I drove to Calgary from Sault Ste Marie (my home town ) this past Jan. hit -30 plus windchill in North Dakota. was still able to pour filtered cubies . Depends a lot on the oil you're able get. I admit I did bring some cubies into hotel for the night once. Other then pouring oil the whole V4 works well in cold.. I don't have a filter heater wrap either. Just a hotfox in tank too ( not a heated tank).

If I travel and need to carry a box full of cubies, I make sure that the first 5 or so are right up against the aluminum oil tank. They stay plenty warm to pour very easily. After I fill, I just rotate another 5 against the oil tank. Works well for me.

That's what I do as well - not that I travel anywhere cold, its just makes it way easier to add in 20-25 gallons when the oil is already pre-warmed.

Thats a great idea. Unfortunately the truck i took has a roll up toneau cover that prevents me from getting cubies against tank.
