The hotter the ECU thinks the fuel temperature is, the more it retards the timing. The fuel temp sensor has always been the primary foe of the folks running WVO. There is one logic when setting up a WVO engine is to use larger sized nozzles and set the pump up advanced compared to stock at any given RPM. I used to ask some of the tuners I spoke with, "Why don't you code the ECU to not pull the timing back when the fuel heats up?" I never really got what I thought was a solid answer; I will say that was over ten years ago, so maybe I have forgotten.
