My understanding is if you let it stand long enough the water will go to the bottom and the oil will sit on top so if you just take the cream off (so to speak) and then filter the cream it should be ok... Want to filter through a 5 micro filter but can be polished to 1 micro to get all the very fine bits of out of it.

Happy to be corrected though if that is incorrect.

Read the posts on here , will give you a much more balanced view than me.

it actually cleans you fuel system out, therefore you often have to change you fuel filter 1ce or twice after you start as all the gunk has been collected up, but after that fine.

What about the fuel pump? I have read elswhere that running on veg oil not all fuel pumps can take it and leads to leaks etc. do you need to change the pump?
