    Hi guys and girls,

    I'm here to ask about the properties of Diesel oil and Vegetable oil.

    Basically, certain fuel pumps will run on SVO, some won't, what i would like to know are the PH values of Veg Oil and Diesel.

    If anyone could answer i would be very greatful, i'm trying to find out why SVO deteriorates the seals inside fuel pumps causing failure.

    Many thanks. Kris


    Just a NOOB.

    Try searching on google. If you can't find the answer after putting some effort into it then come back here, but no promises.

    pH really has no meaning for oil since it is a non-aqueous medium.
    the seals are a copatability issue, if the fluid will absorb into the rubber it will swell and cause a failure.
