1985 Mercedes 300D
Low Mileage example of a classic 300D. These 300D series Mercedes from 1982 to 1985 are by far the best for use with WVO and biodiesel. I put new viton hoses on the engine and added the oil heater and filter. What's nice about that filter is that you can use a conventional Fram oil filter on it that costs about $4.00. This is one of the most forgiving fuel systems on any diesel engine. You can drain the two gallons of oil from the crankcase at changing time, filter it and put it right into the fuel tank and it loves it. This car has the best diesel engine Mercedes ever made. It has a cast iron head and cast iron block which is why they last forever. These cars can go for a half a million miles without too much maintenance. Combine that with the free waste vegetable oil factor and you have a car that can provide a huge return on investment. Jut do the math on almost no annual fuel cost over a 20 year period and you'll see what I mean. It is a good idea to run at least 10% diesel in order to keep everything loosened up in the fuel system although the car will start on strait SVO in warmer temps. This car is not fast but there's something about the low end torque and the sound of the diesel that's kind of addicting. It's a unique old world feel combined with understated indestructible luxury. This car is heavy which is why it rides so smoothly and has tank like safety in a crash.
