I recently removed and reinstalled a greasecar system from one E300 to another. It appears that we are burning some diesel even when the veggie is engaged. What might I have done improperly when hooking this back up? We are defintiley burning veggie as we go through that at a normal pace.

Supply valve not closing completely would let some diesel through while on veg.

How do I fix this problem? Pull apart and clean? Replace? Any advice is much appreaciated.

Over in the maintence tips there's instructions on clean and adjust valves. I haven't had to do it yet.

You should call Greasecar, there was a guy there named Ethan that specialized in E300s, don't know if he's still there. My E300 conversion does the same thing - never fully switches over to diesel. Greasecar learned somethign about these engines after I converted mine, some extra loop you have to put in them or something. I haven't done it yet but it didn't sound too complicated.
