W115 1974 240D Waves hello from Washington DC


Planning on doing a conversion to veggie oil. Have the parts but would love to talk to anyone else who has done a W115 conversion before.

Cheers, Paul.

Welcome to Benzworld! 1983 300d W123 waving back from NY! There are some veg oil converts here on the forum, but you'll find that the subject of veg oil conversion on this forum is a Pandoras box of controversy. The general populus here firmly believes that you'll ruin your engine, and some believe otherwise. With the current cost of diesel I personally put aside my veg oil aspirations and only run my car on straight diesel. I wish you the best of luck whatever you decide!

Yes Honey! Thats how they sound! Its a diesel!
