Hi, I live in regional South Australia.
My benz is and 87 sold here in 88 W124 300D with a 6cyl NA.
I run veggie and have done so for about 18 months and 15,000kms.
My car is in pristine condition, it was already in very good shape when i purchased her and i have been working at making her even better.
I purchased her off of the web on photos and by the word of the seller specifically to run veggie. When it arrived i was impressed with her condition and lost my nerve to put veggie in.
So i got an old nissan patrol as my sacrificial anode. I have ran her on veg for about 2 years 40,000km.
Where i live it is very hot.
I am about to remove the IP injectors and glows.
I plan to get the injectors set 5bar above the nominal pressure and advance the pump by about 2 degrees. Some chrome glows. I also need to re-bush the belt tension, i noticed it is running on an angle (ouch) real glad i spotted it b4 the belt snapped.
I am looking for a bigger fuel tank, OEM tool kit (if they even came with one) and CC that will use the stalk. The car came with a Dana Corp one but it does not work, the vac pump in it was fine but some thing must be wrong with the controller board. I am also hunting a different glow relay that will have long after glow. I have considered mod to the existing one with a relay but would prefer an OEM that will do the job or maybe an after market.
I am considering LPG fumigation and maybe a water spray.
Thanks for the opportunity to share with you all.
