A heat exchanger can be handy for keeping the veg runny but until the car is warm it's a bit of a chocolate teapot.

Best options for winter are one of those and a twin tank system or bite the bullet and use 5% petrol on top of the regular veg/derv mix Smiley

This lot sell the full kit for the job http://www.dieselveg.com/ no idea how good it is or what it's like pricewise compared to others.

If you go twin tank you could have one tank of 50/50 and the other 100%
