Good point.  So, does the heated veggie oil thing do
anything bad to the pump (or, is it okay because
veggie oil lubes better than diesel fuel anyway...)

Maybe I could put a valve in one of the lines (similar
to a heater valve) so I could close the coolant flow
to the heater when there is little or no veggie oil in
the fuel or it is very hot outside.
