WVO can cause many problems.

It tends to break loose all kinds of crud in a hurry. It will clean the heck out of your fuel system, causing a large crud burst. Most of this should be caught by your filter.

Have you changed your filter? It is very common to plug a fuel filter when switching to WVO. This would be the first thing to do - replace it. A plugged filter can put bubbles in your injector pump. The bubbles will not allow the injector pump to send the right amount of fuel, the car's ECU senses this and increases the stroke, sometimes to a limit, causing an error code.

You can also plug your tank pickup unit. The thread below can help with that.

I am not a big fan of WVO in these cars - it seems too big a risk. But to each his own, ain't America great?
