Hello New Member from South Florida

Hello, I own a W123 1979 300D, that I bought about a month ago. It has 188k and in good shape w/ very little rust. I was intending to run it on WVO to save some $$ because my daily driver is a Dodge 1500 Ram w a Hemi that is killing me on gas, only gets 14MPG!! I'm very new (green) to WVO and any help would be greatly appreciated. I've done a bit of research online and I'm getting mixed reviews in reference to running this vehicle on WVO. Do i need to make any conversions?? The average temp down here is in the 80s. I have read that some guys just run 100 % WVO w/ no conversions down here??? Is this possible??
