Thanks the company that is providing the Fuel is http://www.rentechinc.com/, They convert waste into the fuel, No conversion kit needed, no modifications needed either, burns cleaner and safer to humans And no We have zero sponsor funding coming out of my pocket
The engine we are using is the 24 valve straight 6 diesel
