    Anybody convert their diesel motor to a grease machine? I have a 2006 PSD f-350 dump and considering the switch. I wonder about the power and mileage and availabilty of used fry oil. What are the true costs of the change over? What about warranty? Thanks. Mike

    Are you talking about running waste vegetable oil or biodiesel? Either way if you are making your own BD or WVO your will void the warranty for the fuel system components. But it doesn't really matter what you put in your tank, if Ford determines that a problem was caused by fuel they won't warranty the work.
