Default New to WVO

My son bought a 2000 F-250 with a Vegiestorke kit and after we got it home and ran the oil that was in it out and added some more it wouldn't work in auto. i have figured out its the motor fuse and am working on checking it all out. I may end up with the kit when he jacks up his truck and puts the new 38's on. I have run bio in my 2002 F-350, Jetta TDI and Toyota 1L but it takes a lot of time to convert the oil. WVO seems alot easier.

Welcome aboard.

Have you determined for sure it's the fuse? If you ran the tank completely empty, and don't know the history of how well filtered the previous owner got his oil, there's a possibility of gunk in the pre-filter or main donaldson filter. Both of which will prevent it from working in auto, since it won't come up to proper pressure.

It is the fuse. Replaced and blew again disconnected pump fuse didn't blow. I am going to check and clean pump, check screen and replace Donaldson filter.
