As for filtering veggie oil thru denim, check back in your history of the Diesel engines and you might find filters for the fuel that used cotton waste for filtering. That waste came from the mills that made blue jeans. Running veggie in a Diesel has been done for a long time. Straight sunflower oil was tried in JD tractors over 20 years ago. Result, cleaner running engine and better performance too.

I think you're right. My '93 Explorer has coil packs. Nearly all cars and trucks made now do.

Theres a reveiw of the 6.6 duromax in they only get 12ish mpg 30 would highly unlikely with engine running atleast.
If you had unlimited amounts of money I guess almost any thing could be possible .

Winter time. Time to bring up old topics and see if anybody has any new,updated or personal input on the topics. This subforum is one of my favorites as I feel its the inevitable future and deserves looking at now.
