Everything else / A/C Hard Start Kit
« on: August 22, 2009, 02:22:20 AM »
I came across these "Supco" Hard Start Kits... Has anyone used these? They are not very expensive. Sounded interesting.
Could this help someone with a borderline genset? Their web site is

Could it be used on an Air Compressor?

Waste Motor Oil / Driving on "Wonderfuel"
« on: August 12, 2008, 09:23:02 PM »
Hi Everyone

Got a new use for my controversial fuel. I picked up an old Mercedes Benz 190d 2.5 Turbodiesel.

Have run about 300 miles so far.... I cannot tell the difference between diesel and wonderfuel while driving!
Time will tell if this is a "BIG MISTAKE" So far it sure is fun! :D

The car is not converted.... Just running my RUG thinned blend (WonderFuel) I call it that because when I
Put it in the tank... I wonder if I will be walking home! ;D

Waste Motor Oil / Blended Waste Oil
« on: January 24, 2008, 04:20:37 AM »
Hello everyone

Ive been doing some testing of blended fuels (oils). I had purchased a DIY diesel genset with a ThermoKing C201 (Isuzu) and a ST12 chinese genhead.

When I first got it running I had some trouble with the engine.... Ran some injector cleaner thru it and it has been running great ever since.
I need to thank Mobile Bob for his help he provided early on.

Anyway... I've run it on a few different blended fuels. I intend to run it on straight wvo and or waste petroleum oil by setting it up with heated tank,
filters, injector lines......

I started trying blended oils after hearing about it here and other site's and had been haveing good results. The blending I've done so far has been using
RUG (regular unleaded gas) for a thinning agent. I have used SVO, WVO, Motor Oil, WMO, Waste Machine Lube and Coolant Oil... All was filtered before
and after blending.

All have worked good until tonight! I mixed up a batch that I thought was the same as the previous batch (Waste Lube Oil) Tonight very shortly after
I started the run on the blend then engine began running very poorly. At first I thought I had some excessive loads that where causeing trouble, so I
disconnected all load and the problem continued  :o, So I switched it back to Diesel and it appears to be back to normal now.

Due to the disappointment I shut down for the night  :( I will get back at it again tomorrow. If I figure it out I will let you know.
