Hello Greasecar people,
    I need some advice from any of you who have made a grease car out of a Mercedes 300D, 81 to 85 and have a two tank system.  I bought a nice 1983 and have now gotten all the hoses, fuel lines, switch, tank heater and an aluminum tank for the trunk. I'm ready to get to work on the conversion. But I need advice on where to run the heat hoses, and where to tap into the hot water and then the return loop. Does the 12volt switch go as close to the tank as possible or as close to the diesel injection pump as possible?  I will insulate the 3/4 inch water hoses with foam pipe insulation.  Can I run them down along the inside of the car's frame? Which side?  I would appreciate any advice you are willing to give.
Thank you,
Tom

Not me.
where to tap into the hot water and then the return loop.
The veggie coolant loop would be in parallel with the cab heater core.
Tap into the heater core inlet coolant hose for supply.
Tap into the heater core outlet coolant hose for return.
Does the 12volt switch go as close to the tank as possible or as close to the diesel injection pump as possible?
If you are refering to the the switch for swtching over between diesel/veggie/purge, it should be installed inside the cab.
If you are refering to the 3-way soleniod valves, it should be installed in the engine bay so they are close to the IP.
 I will insulate the 3/4 inch water hoses with foam pipe insulation. Can I run them down along the inside of the car's frame?
Yes.
Which side?
The side that works for a practical and neat installation.
Where would be the location of the veggie filter heat exchanger inside the engine bay?
You would like to keep the hose short and run without sharp turns, in a safe area underneath the car.
