Wondering if any one has converted a truck. I'm a carpenter and have no choice but to own a fuel guzzling wallet slayer. My biggest question is if with modest amount of tools and auto know-how would I be able to convert a diesel? Or maybe a few forum recommendations. I want to run SVO, no biodiesel.

TIA,

John

I haven't done it, but there are lots of resources out there on the 'net.

With your balmy Reno winters, you're going to need a heater in the tank, on the new filter you're going to install, and insulated lines. Got a block heater already?

Thanks for the replies. I plan on selling my truck and buying an earlier model dodge or ford longbed p/u. I've been getting more and more interested in the alternative fuels given the economy and current gas prices. It'd be nice to be able to take a road trip and not have to take out a second mortgage to do it.

John,

While most of the sites like this one are complete bushwa, this one actually seems like it might improve fuel efficiency. I got the info from my UT CCW instructor who also happens to teach in Sparks.
