Alternate Fuel

Enviro Facts: Older Delica L300 can run WVO engine additive without modification!

L400 Space Gear Does NOT run WVO well.  Do not use in your L400 Diesel! You will be replacing the Injection Pump within one year. The Over Flow Restriction Valve  Orifi tend to plug and the Shutoff solenoid will stick. FYI!

With the Delica L300 Star Wagon, you can run waste veggie oil up to 30/70 mix with diesel in the hot summer months without mods.

A heated filter and fuel line heater should be installed. Remember WVO is NOT bio-diesel. These are two completely different fluids. WVO is used Canola oil from restaurants that has been settled and filtered to 5 micron.

Bio diesel uses harsh chemicals to break it down and it has to be cleaned. Since we are trying to make as little of an environmental impact as possible, WVO is the better choice. 2 Tank Kits are recommended and availablr on line, or on and can be installed for using WVO in the colder months.

If you have access to a lot of WVO and Storage, this might be OK for you….

You NEED a separate WVO Tank that is heated and PURGED before shut down. Look for these type of kits. Some Kits from Europe use a Small Diesel Tank to Start and run on until Veggie Oil is HOT, then switch over to WVO Tank. Before shutting down the engine, the Injection Pump must run on Diesel to Purge all the Veg oil out of it and the Fuel Filter. The Cost for Install and Maintenance compared to the hassle of Collecting/filtering and Storing Veg Oil IMO, is not worth it.
