Default Anyone run wvo/svo in their diesel engine?

Thinking about running WVO from a local in a diesel. All my research points to the 2 tank system. Start on diesel because it's more viscous, heat the WVO tank, switch about 10 min into driving and continue on WVO. 10 minutes before shut down, switch back to diesel so it'll start the next day. The whole reasoning being the WVO needs to be heated in order to reach diesel like viscosity. Now my question is...could I not just get a tank heater, block heater, and wrap the lines in a heating wrap, all connected to the battery or an inverter? Sure it would take 10-15 min to heat up but it's wayyy cheaper than the $1,900 dual tank kit. I have a 10 battery bank so current draw isn't an issue, not that a couple hundred watts in heaters is much of a draw anyways. Is this reasonable?

Oh well now I know what he is talking about because the link explained what the abbreviations stood for I can tell you that I only know about biodiesel.

I've heard of people doin like a half and half mixture of vegetable oil and diesel, but I don't has first hand experience so I cant say.

What I'd do is run a dual tank setup because that is tried and true and you know it works. Get like a 5-10 gallon fuel cell and put it in the bed and use that for your diesel tank since you wont use it much and use your normal tank for your veggie earl.

A diesel engine will run on just about anything you put in it though. You can even put gasoline in it in a small mixture. So if you have any old gasoline laying around that you don't wanna run in your gas car because it is so old you can slowly mix it in in the diesel and use it up.

What do you have anyways?

And BTW, block heaters have a pretty damn good electrical draw. If you have ever paid attention when you glow plugs are fired up they will put of hell of a load on your batts.

I don't have a bed, it's a suburban. Dual tanks adds a ton of complication to the matter. I don't think a blend will work for me due to the temps here. It would need to be preheated regardless then.
