I have just been playing with a honeywell oil burner, which was running on standard heating oil. I turned the fuel pressure up a bit and mixed some waste veg oil in with it. I reckon I had 30% paraffin to 70% wvo. Runs fine and really belts the heat out.

So now to make it run on 100% wvo....

Initially to get it started I will either use neat kero or burn firewood to heat the nozzle assembly and the preheater fuel coil on the firebox. Once the fuel heater coil is up above 80C, then the 100% wvo will be thin enough to ignite and burn properly. I get the wvo for free, so I only pay for kero. I will post some updates once I have added the fuel heater copper coil on Thursday.
