I am considering purchasing a 50 motor launch that has a 4 cylinder 330 cat diesel with 10,000 hours and it was installed sometime in the 60‘s. I would like to convert it to run on bio diesel. I’m wondering if anyone has had any experience in doing this, or know of any links that can provide info regarding specific marine application. One thing I have heard is that it needs to be heated to prevent jelling during the colder months in the winter. Even though I am in the Pacific Northwest, I understand that warming the bio diesel is still necessary. My first thought is, is it just a matter of pouring the bio diesel in the tank and “Bob’s your Uncle” or is there a conversion process involved, that requires altering the engine components?
Thanks for any responses
