Everyone wants to know HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? To run on used vegetable oil, that is. Well, it’s really a case of penny wise, pound foolish – or, you get what you pay for. Our systems have bomb-proof components and lots and lots of heat to protect your injection pump in the Alaska winters.

We can install a no-frills 3-season system for a substantial savings, but we recommend the Alaska Standard for our climate. Deluxe options are available (gauges/controllers/pre-heaters), but our basic components are rock-solid in the standard system.
Shipping discounts may be available for folks picking up at our Chugiak (Anchorage) location, especially if your shipping times are flexible.
Pickup trucks require some higher-flow components and additional labor, and will cost a few hundred dollars more.
