This engine's simple, tried-and-tested design utilizes the engine's waste heat and a 12 V heater to heat the vegetable oil to about 160 degrees. The high temperatures thin the vegetable oil, giving it the same visciocity (thickness) as diesel fuel.
The Lister Type engine is based on the original design first developed by RA Lister in 1929. The engine is legendary for its record for longetivity with many engines running in excess of 100,000 hours without being overhauled. This unit features a 1000 RPM 12 HP single cylinder Lister Type engine, indirect injection, pre-heating system for vegetable oil, vegetable oil/engine temperature gauge, replacable cylinder liners, cast iron piston, lubricating oil pump, muffler, pressurized full flow lubrication, oil bath air cleaner, fuel filter, steel skid base and is electric start. COOLANT TANK, STAND AND VIBRATION MOUNTS ARE OPTIONAL.
