300D Mercedes - Bleeding Engine
$300 car, all it needed was a bleeding and then it drove great. It was
sitting in this guy's yard for 2 1/2 years with air in the engine due to a
loose fuel filter. He thought it was broken so he gave it away =] engine
has only 195,000 miles on it, which is nothing for these cars. It has the
standard straight 5 engine.
I will be using this car in my first veggie oil conversion project.
Biggest Challenge When Removing a Mercedes Diesel Starter Motor
lacement-1969-1985. Getting the hex head bolts out can be the toughest part
of the job - especially the top bolt. You just can't get a straight shot at
it and both bolts seem to be on way too tight. That means you also need
something that can deliver a lot of torque.
This primarily applies to the 1969 to 1985 220D, 240D, 300D, 300CD, 300TD
Cheap Fuel, Great Fuel Economy
Run a diesel engine car on plant oil.
This is a 1983 Mercedes-Benz 300SD that I purchased in 1992 for $8000. I
drove my newborn daughter home from the hospital in it in 1996. Its
odometer broke three years ago at 356,000 miles. It probably has 500,000
miles on it now, and it's still going strong.
Though I demonstrate Canola oil burning in this engine, I mainly use a
similar, though non-edible, oil called jatropha that I grow in my back
yard, at a cost of about 35 cents per gallon to produce. Canola (rapeseed)
oil can be purchased in bulk for about $1.75 per gallon. On either oil,
this car gets 50 miles per gallon versus about 27 miles per gallon on
These are the best cars for burning vegetable oil, because their iron
blocks are more tolerant of hotter-burning plant oil than more delicate
aluminum block engines in newer diesel cars.
