Inline WVO Filtration saves Time, Money, Patience

A WVO Filtering Kit lets you filter vegetable oil economically, with speed, relative ease, and minimum mess. Flip on the WVO pump and oil is filtered down to 178 Microns by a cleanable stainless mesh filter. Drop it down to 10 Microns and also block free water by adding the Waterblocker option. This works great as a portable inline filtration system to enable filtration on the road, as long as you choose your oil wisely.

Settling the oil for a few days or weeks first or, heating and/or applying a vacuum to the oil to remove all of the water, or using a WVO Centrifuge, is recommended for best results. The bottom line is that used oil that restaurants dispose of can be used as fuel if you choose good oil and filter it well, and this kit will help to get the job done! This WVO equipment is not assembled and requires $10-15 of fittings from your local hardware store.

Frequently Answered Questions

Clean Oil is close to Free Fuel

Liberate your tailpipe and your wallet from dirty and expensive fuels. Save time, money, and patience with inline filtration. Tens of thousands of gallons of vegetable oil have been filtered into fuel using these filters. After trying it the hard way – gravity filtration with a sock filter – you may come to appreciate inline filtration.


Yes – it Pumps Vegetable Oil!

Be aware that many pumps just can not do this job well. Most pumps are full of plastic parts that melt when they are overworked by a thicker liquid.  
Read the WVO Filtration Guide to understand more about collecting grease for fuel. This pump will perform best when the vegetable oil is fluid.
Oil Sources
Finding free fuel is an exciting prospect, and it is a skill that anyone can learn. There is bit of a learning curve, but as any veggie enthusiast will tell you – research first, try it out, be persistent, and you ll be able to spot and filter good veggie like a pro! Generally Asian buffet places are golden. Read about where to look and how to ask for it in the Filtration Guide, and watch a video showing an oil hunt.
DeWatering Oil

Place a Waterblocker filter inline in your fuel transfer setup to remove water. It will plug when it is full of water. Also removes particles at 15 microns and works with gasoline or diesel fuel. It makes sense to have this be the last filter for oil to pass through so that particles have already been removed and the waterblocking capability lasts longest.

Take care when collecting waste vegetable oil as it may contain water, which should not be in the fuel system of your vehicle. All water may not be removed by these filters alone. There are two types of water in oil: free and suspended. Free water is that which is not mixed thoroughly into the VegOil. The Goldenrod Waterblocker Filter will capture this type of water very well, and will clog when it is full – disallowing any fluids to pass.Suspended water, otherwise known as emulsified, occurs when water is mixed in thoroughly with the vegoil. Some of this type of water may make its way through a waterblocker element. This is why oil should be avoided if you are on the go, as settling and heating must be applied to remove this type of water. Starting with good oil is your best protection against water. For a complete discussion on this topic, read the WVO Filtration Guide, for free online or with any purchase.
To Filter in the Winter
Oil filters best when it is thin. When it is cooler or cold out the oil becomes thicker which makes filters unnecessarily clog quicker and pumps work too hard. To mitigate this collect during the day when the sun has the opportunity to warm the container, or use a “bucket heater” to warm the oil up first.

Converting a Diesel to SVO?

Vegetable Oil as Fuel works best in a fully converted diesel. Find full Diesel Conversion Kits for your vehicle.

 “the Diesel engine can be fed vegetable oils which may become in the course of time as important as petroleum” -Rudolf Diesel, Diesel Engine Inventor, 1911
How to Handle Oil
Vegetable Oil can be very sticky on any surface it comes in contact with. It will stain clothing and fabric, as well as garages, driveways, and wood. Be aware of this when filtering as minor precautions can save you alot of mess. For instance, wear gloves, wait for drips to fall before moving hoses, and put down cardboard or a plastic sheet around an area that you use to filter – or choose an area that is okay to get messy, or can be power-washed to be cleaned. Throwing on a jumpsuit or wearing clothes that can get dirty is a good precaution. Read more in the WVO Filtration Guide.
