Vehicle Listing Description
This car will run on Straight Vegetable Oil, Waste Vegetable Oil, Biodiesel, Diesel, or a combination of any of these fuels. The single tank conversions are the easiest and most efficient way to run vegetable oil in your vehicle. If you are environmentally conscious, this is the vehicle for you. This car has a neutral carbon footprint. This vehicle will pay for itself in a few years in fuel savings alone if you use free WVO. If you are tired of our dependence on foreign oil imports, this vehicle is for you. This car can be run on pure vegetable oil that is domestically grown and produced. The conversion is based on a 2 micron filter/water separator that has a top loaded 150 watt heating element that automatically turns on when temperatures fall below 60F and turns off when the oil reaches 85F. This ensures the veg oil will flow through your filter no matter how cold it gets outside. The final heat stage comes from injector line heaters that get the fuel nice and hot quickly. These heaters will get the fuel to 160F within 3 minutes and if you turn them on before you start the car you will be insuring that hot oil is reaching the injectors right away. This will guarantee easy starts, even on cold mornings and also ensure proper and complete burning of the oil which is critical for the health of your engine. This is considered a temperate climate single tank conversion. Description: Manila Beige exterior, MB paint code 681 with Palomino MB-Tex interior. 5-Cylinder, 3.0 liter, single overhead cam, Turbodiesel, 4-speed automatic transmission, power assisted 4-wheel disc brakes, manual sunroof, A/C and heat climate control, power windows, central locking, power steering, cruise control, stock Becker AM/FM cassette player, electrically heated rear windshield, quartz chronometer, alloy wheels, front center folding arm rest, zebrano wood dash trim and console, combed wool carpet, 2-speed windshield wiper with 5-second mist interval control, and parcel nets with all manuals and service books. The car has original paint and it is in very good condition as you can see from the photos. Most of it shines like new.

The transmission shifts smooth in all gears. The engine in this car performs nicely with good power and torque. It is a Turbodiesel model and accelerates well through all gears and it is smooth running at all speeds.
