This is Randall Webber's 1997 F350, The initial cruise was made in -20F weather, it took approx 15 miles to get it warm, after topping off the coolant, the 40 gallon tank is insulated in a custom box with 2 inches of extruded pink board surrounding it, The hoses are insulated and loomed from the engine compartment all the way back to the bed and even the 6-8 inches from the bed to the tank! The switch was incorporated into the dash with the fuel gauge mounted in a chrome gauge holder attached to the bottom of the dash just under the power point.
This is my Prius Killer. I installed the Greasecar kit over a year ago and have been enjoying every since. Before that, it took me over a year to find the perfect car that I could convert. Now I laugh and smirk at the electric hybrids as I pass them on the freeway...feels good. Other than that, just socking it to the Middle East 1 gallon at a time.

I just converted my car this August, and am now 17 but have been
planning and pushing to do it since I was 16. I see how important it is to be one of the first of my generation to do so in this country, if
not the world, and hope others will catch on soon!
