Waste Vegetable Oil / SVO Pumping
« on: May 07, 2007, 05:42:24 PM »
I gather oil with a 12 volt Fil Rite Pump.  Its a bit slow, but in the field it is a necesary evail I guess.

1.  At home, I wanted to change to a 110 volt pump system to suck and fill my tank.  Can I use a water "jet pump" from Lowes and just know it may not last a super long time??

2.  Has anyone desinged a valve system to the pump can both suck oil from my gatering tank into my holding tank, then reverse it back into my truck?

3.  I have two 500 gallon containers stacked, can I fill the top one, then use a filter inline to fill the bottom one?  Will a gravity filter work in this case.  Time is not an option, it could drip for all I care...what filter can I put in line?

4.  Does anyone know where to get a metal holding tank for behind a resturant?

Listeroid Engines / Video of Running Engines!
« on: January 08, 2007, 11:15:49 PM »
I thougt I'd start a topic for us Newbies...In trhe beginning I wanted to see a lister or other running so I could hear it and see it.  I have seen a few now, but its alomost impossible to re-locate them in all these messages.

So, here is a brand new Video, just shot Sunday the 7th, 2007.  Its an oil pump in Galveston texas.  I shot it to show how even a big moter like this can be so quiet!  Does anyone know what this is?

I hope you can view it here:

I am in the market for a Lister, and I would love to see and hear one before I commit to buying.  My electritian is reccomending a Chinese and quiet unit, but I am resisting.

I am near Houston, and will gladly drive to see someone's setup if you are willing to let me see it!  I promise I am sane, normal and not a purse snacher.

Waste Vegetable Oil / Storage of WVO??
« on: December 19, 2006, 07:22:53 PM »
I recently converted my truck to WVO.  I had to drive to Oaklahoma this weekend and the 650 mile trip from Houston cost me literally $29 in diesel for start up, purges and the last bit of miledge on diesel whan I ran out of oil on the return home.  Pretty cool...

Anyway, I have now secured two sources of WVO and one makes about 200 a week and thoe other 100 a week.  So, I decided to make my home run on WVO with a 30HP lister, which I am working on and will keep you posted.

Anyway, I now have 1000 gallon stotage capacity at home and i wanted to know just how long this poil will last before use?  Can it be stored indefinetly?  Months?  What?  I originally thought I could get a storage unit and simply store up tones of oil for a rainey day...but now I am wondering it if can be held very long at all?


Listeroid Engines / Make: Lovson Max Output (KW): 15.1 - 20
« on: December 13, 2006, 02:07:51 AM »

I have heard there are several Indian made Listers.  I don;t want to purchase a bad one...so...does anyone know if this is a good model?

Make:  "Lovson"   

Or:  I can buy a "Mitsui"

Lastly, while your at it, is there a particular gen head to  get or shy away from?


Feel free to email me direct as i don't have access to this very often.  todd@toddhanson.com
