Vegetable oil filters

It is highly recommend to use a heated filter in vehicles which are powered by vegetable oil. By using a heated filter, you put less strain on the system as a whole and are far less likely to suffer from filter blockages and fuel starvation. By heating and thinning down the vegetable oil at the filter, the fuel will pass through the filter more easily, putting less strain on your injector pump. See filters section for more detail.

It is also important to ensure that when running on used cooking oil (UCO) the fuel is well filtered before it is put in the fuel tank. Gravity filtering using sock filters provide a very time, cost and energy efficient means of filtering the raw vegoil to fuel grade. See our Simple guide for filtering used cooking oil for more details.

HF05 Coolant Heated Filter - Eckes Style

Heated diesel filter for vegetable oil

The original and still the best. The Eckes WT style heated filter. The concept was originally designed by a German vegoiler, Eckhard Wernick, who developed the idea of fitting a VW oil cooler between the filter head and a spin on filter. As a result with a brazed plate heat exchanger sandwiched between the head and the filter, this unit gets exceptionally hot, very quickly. There is no 'wax stat' or valve to reduce the coolant flow once the coolant is warm. This gets the full, unrestricted flow of piping hot coolant and transfers it to the fuel as it enters the filter. Rest assured there is no risk of the filter element breaking down under the heat with our biodiesel specification Mann filters.

Here we have the complete Eckes style heated filter as follows;

  • Bosch universal filter head (BFH2)
  • Accepts standard M16 threaded spin-on diesel filters
  • M14 fuel fittings
  • Inflow from either the left or the right
  • Outflow from the top
  • Eckes seal
  • Adapter bolt
  • VW style oil cooler - aluminium brazed plate heat exchanger
  • High quality, heat and biodiesel tolerant spin on filter
  • Complete with 8mm fittings (2 banjo bolts, 2 banjo tails, 1 blank and 5 copper washers)

    This unit can double as a looped return tee since the vegoil from the fuel tank can enter on one side and the returning fuel from the injector pump can enter on the other. An additional fuel fitting is required, available from here.
