Collects old fryer grease and mixs it 70/ 30 and his exhaust smells like fish on Friday and fries the rest of the week.
Well....THAT'S funny. Hope he isn't throwing in wacky weed to the mix as THAT could cause problems besides the smells?
I thought I read in the Sprinter manual that bio
diesel should be avoided...as it could cause trouble with the particulate filter within the bowels of the engine down the pike(or was that from using the wrong standard of oil)? Don't know if I want to take
that chance with a $15,000 MB engine ...harump!
Sidenote: I still remember when I was attending school in Santa Barbara MANY a moon ago and had a neat, used, '68 Corolla hardtop with 4-on-the
floor. My next door neighbor showed me how to bypass the smog pump, etc., which certainly overclocked the performance and gas mileage on that
engine! Probably caused the current drought too, but hey? Anyway, when
I graduated we hooked everything back up to pass inspection (with flying colors btw), and then sold it for more than I originally paid. That little car was a stormer and owned US 101 all the way! Leave it to the gov't to screw things up for us!?
