Just saw this on top gear, apparently you can get a diesel car to run on vegetable oil. Pretty cheap, anyone tried it? Here's the video
and here is a link on how to make the stuff. http://journeytoforever.org/biodiesel_make.html

yeah, my friend has that kind of thing, except you need a truck to go get the oil from restaurants and a huge machine to process the stuff.

An old boss of mine was doing it for quite a while on a couple of his trucks... The fact is with a diesel, you can run almost anything in it...lol. Motor oil, vegitable oil, karosene, jet fuel.... and a few others... They all act the same and have similar BTU output, so they pretty much all work in a diesel.

ITS a huge money saver, cause you can usually get the oil for free from most restaurants, so they dont have to pay to get it all picked up. And all you have to do is filter it before using it.
