    Any of you guys running used veggie oil in your 6.2? I tried the search but it said these terms were too common and it wouldn't search them.The research I have done says that this seems to work best in trucks and cars with bosch inj. pumps or on motors with no injector pumps at all like the powerstrokes.Just wanted to know if anyone here has done it and what might need to be done to keep a 6.2s pump alive running on veggie.

    As I understand it, a 6.2 will love you for running well-filtered WVO. Cleans out the fuel system and lubes the IP well. Pookster is running something on WVO, but I can't remember if it's a 6.2 or a car. He drops in periodically, so keep this post alive; he'll see it eventually.
    Try these links for more info in the meantime:

    *** Try using the search feature - search for all posts by "Pookster"; I know he's posted some feedback about his adventures in WVO usage. ***

    Pookster was running 50% WVO in his Chevy 6.2 equiped truck, and was working on a setup to run full WVO, I don;t know if he got it done yet but he did run the 50% successfully.
    I am working on a source for WVO then I will be running 50% so I don;t modify anything.
    :grin:
