Has anyone ran VO or VO/Diesel mix in older tractors or diesel lawnmowers?
I am thinking of buying a tractor or lawnmower to try this in.
Any suggestions?

1995 Dodge Cummins W/ Custom 2-Tank Setup and 60 K miles on veg oil. (sold)
1984 300D-Daily Driver No Mods single tank and 25 K miles on veg. (sold)

Bump! Has anyone got some info on this topic? I am interested in doing the same. Many farmers around me do this type of thing in older tractors, and I am interested in SVO for mobile equipement and tractors.
Thanks,
Brad

We ran a 30% VO blend in 5 or 6 John Deere tractors for a year or so with on problems. We now run biodiesel.

We are running farm pressed SVO in a 671 Detroit (238) to pump water. Just dump it in and run. I think it starts a little slow with low batteries. We are willing to take a risk on something 30 or 40 years old.

Good to hear. I am looking to run a fleet of zero turn mowers on WVO, starting with one that is about to be phased out due to high hours. Anyone with ideas to help post em up.
Thanks
Brad
