  • Success!!

    We have Success:cheers::cheers:. Our Prototype 2004 VegiRam and its owner just got back from the maiden Voyage, a 3200 mile roundtrip to the Dakotas and back using oil and Happily reported that the system performed PERFECT!!. He Went through the mountains, cold weather, wet weather, ran it out of oil, used some extremely thick stuff. Never a problem. The engine never once stuttered, and the system never once hiccupped!! His business associate that went with him apparently could not believe how seamless and perfect it worked, even when they ran out of oil and didn't notice. A very successful First trip to say the least!!

      So what's next after the VegiRam? Got any other major developments underway?

            Whats next? Hmmmm. Probably going to go a few years forward and back with the Dodge, then Realistically, as much as I hate to admit it, I may have to contaminate my soul with a General product. . Yep, the VegiMax.

            Actually won't be that bad. I had a 1995 6.5 chevy crew that was basically my company rig when in the Navy at my last command that I took under my wing, fixed up and was pretty fond of. Shortly before I left our Bosses(NCWG1) out of San Diego "Procured" the Truck claiming we didn't register it properly even after our own CO went to bat to keep it. Last I knew they were driving the thing everywhere.

            Back on track- I have found that as the business grows I spend more time doing business stuff and that time for R&D is much harder to come by, so development time takes longer. That Dodge kit took over a year to develop! Got to figure out a way to find more time for new product development...

              I wondered if you guys had looked at GM products at all. Big market for those out there as well - even if you're not that fond of them. Lol...

              Sounds like it might be time for more employees...or maybe someone with a business background to handle the day to day business stuff. If you're like me, it's hard to give up responsibility to other folks and not be as involved, but sometimes I suppose it's the best thing to do.

              I don't know that I've ever heard, but how many folks actually make up "DFA"?

              Good luck!

                Jason a Chevy

                I procure to all (DFA) that in my experience dealing with auto dealers(vendor) that chevy no longer has the fire in them like the 60's and 70's(remember camaros and montes and novas and many more, you get the picture).Now its down on wall street50%.Now all diesel is ISUZI and where do ya think there from ASIA,please don't vest any money in foreign companies from communistic countries.If ya run out of products at least start with european rigs(BENZ,VW,VOLVO,BMW).Alot of these cars have the same blocks(engine),and would makes it almost universal.This would make it more profitable for kits on older cars and trucks.But by all means please do a MB/JEEP 3.0,this application would cover all the small MB SUVs as well as JEEP cherokee and grand cherokee CRDs.If time permits maybe a 2.8CRD Liberty ??.Good luck with all future projects and please thats one general you can't trust...................greasy

                  Ughh you think the 6.0l injectors are finicky !&%?? Good luck on that one. I personally know 2 people who ruined DMAX's on WVO. Admittedly I don't know everything about the oil they burned (they purchased it in bulk from 2 different places) but I am suspect.

                  Maybe it was the kits they bought? dunno. All I know is that they now have expensive yard ornaments

                  These were 2000 and 2003 models IIRC

                    How does this work? The V3 looses PSI and switches auto??

                      Man, I dunno if I am bummed now or not. I bought my 7.3 because that was the truck of choice for burnin oil, and that was the truck of choice for the vegistroke. My first choice was the Duramax, then Cummins, and finally the Powerstroke. So if the vegiram was around 2 years ago, I probably would have went that direction. Now, however, I love my superduty so much, I couldn't imagine having anything else. In fact if someting should ever happen to it (knock on wood) I would probably just try to replace it with the exact same thing. Trouble is, they are getting a little harder to come by.

                        I too was a dodge guy (hummin cummins),but the reality is you need durability in products.The ford will always be a better bet,because of the lack of injector pumps,I have two friends that started greasing the same time as me(1 Chevy,1Dodge)theyare on the second IP each,and the duracrap needs another soooon.International is the oldest still running truck company in the WORLD because they getter done every day,every load.Ford is the only truck under $100,000 with that technology,you should be proud and never ponder such thoughts.I still wear my International T-shirt from 1985 (With pride)...greasy

                          Dito!

                          I too was a Cummins man! Owned 10 plus of them (at different times) trouble free miles. But I love my 7.3 on grease; it's in a 97 I like the body style too, Super Dutys are good ones too. Grease on!
