First of all, I’m totally jealous! For the miles I drive on a weekly basis, the thought of only filling up once every week or week and half, even at higher prices is very enticing. That at the fact that torque = horespowerx2. mmmm….toooorque.
But I digress.
I came across this article about running a mix of diesel and vegetable oil in a standard diesel engine:
Using vegetable oil as fuel in diesel engines isn’t a new idea. Rudolf Diesel’s first engines were built to run on peanut oil for the developing world, which had no petrochemicals industry. Running your modern diesel car or van on veg is just going back to what the designer intended. But why should you make the change?
Knowing how particular we MINI owners are about what we put into our cars, I can’t image that anyone has done this.
Yet, I still have to ask, out of curiosity more than anything. Has anyone done this?
