Visit the W123 forum. There's a whole regiment of McDiesels over there.

Hi,

I am going to do this. However, someone said that McDonald's oil was not good for this.

I have a Diesel MB and a Deisel Chevy Van and I need to convert both of them soon or rob another bank.

RE: diesel conversation

A few weeks ago I heard of a young couple in the Quebec area who own a 1985 Volks. And the guy was interviewed on radio (CBC-Fr 95.1 FM in MTL) and he and his girlfriend had developped a network of restaurant who would donate oil. He explained how he had to get some quality oil and some other not too good. Then how to filter it. Then how to start the car on Diesel then switch to oil. Etc. etc. Seems like a rather "simple" project if you know your way around a car, but it's a free ride.

Also he had to take care of the donators by engaging himself to collect all he oil for a time period, etc. etc.
