What does WVO and SVO stand for?

My torpedo heater died, That is a major issue in Minnesota here, I was reading on googles about making your own BREW for the heater, Kerosene is getting very expensive.... They said mix Bio diesel or WVO with the kero. also mentioned SVO. Any body know what the VO's mean????

You think kerosene has an odor, wait till you fill the tank with waste oil from MickyD's . You may gain tens pounds just by inhaling the stuff.

40%

I run a mix in My 150,00 btu heater. I tried lots of mixtures. 40% waste vegetable oil mixed with kerosene works the best. any more than 40% wont burn. The shop smells like a bakery, but the fumes from the heater are definitely not as bad as it is with straight kerosene

filters

the first thing I would check would be the filters on the back of the motor, probably plugged, also there is a pressure test port on the back of the motor. someplace on the unit, there should be a tag that tells what the proper air pressure should be for that unit.
