    BioDiesel is a cleaning agent also so your system will clean up with time.

    BioDiesel is also a good lubricant, so your valves are protected.

    You will never convince me that biodiesel is bad as I have a 1981 LC that runs GREAT after all these years. [I only stopped making it because I don't have the time]

    I suggest you go to the Landcruiser site "Ih8mud" and look at alternative fuels discussions there.


    AS FAR AS PASSING EMISIONS:

    Tune up your truck with your mechanic and then have at it. Make sure fuel injection pump and injectors are working properly. I would drive the truck or idle it for at least a half hour prior to going there.

    Good Luck!
    Even the farmers around here won't use biodiesel .

    Farmers where I spent 14 years used it all the time.

    New Diesel engines cannot use it as it is too viscous for the high pressure injector systems.

    Farmers with older tech swore by it.

    So if the farmers by you use newer Diesels, that's why, or they just don't know anything about it.

    This is however getting off topic. I invite you to personally educate yourself rather than going by other people's opinions.

    There is an alternative fuel section on the SteelSoldiers Forum where this can be continued.

    Land cruiser is different then mil wheeled vehicles.


    Skip the bio and go with red if you're cheap.
    Everything above is my two cents worth. If it offends you, well, deep breath.

    Whatever... Stay uninformed.

    You wanna personally attack me, fine. I'll take the high road.

    The OP is trying to pass emissions. Was trying to help him, not argue with you.

    Nothing about being cheap. I had fowled injectors and a friend told me to try bioDiesel. It worked and I was impressed.

    Running red is illegal.

    This is still off topic.

    I'm done.

    The OP is in Michigan where their are no emission tests , the OP never stated his reason for wanting the information .
    The OP never mentioned passing a emission test.

    My hunch witch may be wrong is he wants it related to Michigan not registering HMMWV's that were sold with the "OFF ROAD USE ONLY'" agreement.

    I just like to have all the information in my hands that way if anybody in any state has any questions I can help them out. I have received numerous phone calls from other states for information and Iím glad to help out when I can.

    Please keep the topic clean and respectful as this is for information purposes only.

    Yeppp

    Op is trolling.

    When these trucks first were released this talk was a ban offense on here. Now not so much.
