  1. The bad thing is it only takes me about 10 minutes to get to work, so a dual tank system would not work for such short of a distance...Surely someone on here has had experience with resistance wire before and can tell me what size gauge wire I'd need....
  2. I want to create a set of heating elements for moy diesel vehicle for use on running veggie oil. As such the oil needs to be heated before going to the injectors. I have seen a set of elements using resistance wire by someone selling them on e-bay. He no longer sells them. I need to know what diameter or gauge of resistance wire would I need to heat the steel fuel line to roughly 100 degrees minimum?? The length of the fuel line itself is about 10 inches or so. Wanting to run this on a 30 amp 12v dc circuit. Also thought about putting a thermosat in the circuit that way I can control the temperatre...I have seen several differnet sizes of resistance wire on e-bay, but figured I'd get some advice first before going out and buying wire then having to experiment..Please e-mail direct to vaman4215@yahoo.com with info... Thanks, Franklin
