The REAL info is that vegetable oil IS ILLEGAL TO USE and is harmful to the engine.ur just 100% against veggie oil^^
anybody have REAL info? not just hotheaded demands
sorry i have no answers but how much does veggie oil cost you? even at costco it's still more than diesel!
Illegal is illegal, no matter how you try to justify breaking the law.As for it being "illegal",who cares. There are many things "illegal" that go against common sence and are legal to make sure you conform to the latest whim of people who think they know better.
There are, do some research and you will see.Why arent they banning the sales of kits that enable people to use WVO ?
Incorrect. You can give the government all the money you want but it will always be illegal until you become EPA certified. To date, not a single conversion has been certified.If I recall correctly, its not illegal if you pay the tax per gallon of fuel used. There is a federal and state tax. Normally like 15-30 cents for each.
100% Incorrect. It is about the environment. If you don't believe it then go get your conversion certified and you'll be the first and only one in the USA legally using WVO.The EPA will do "what" to certify its use? Nothing, they can't control the tax. It's ALL money. It has nothing to do with the environment.
Strike 2! Incorrect again. It's only about power. It takes fuel to make power and Americans like to go fast. Fuel efficient cars are inherently slow. Look at the Prius- 0-60 in 11 seconds, the TDI Golf- 11.5 seconds, 240D- 0-60 in 20 seconds, ANY of the 70's and 80's econoboxes. It goes on and on. Fuel economy= SLOW.The spin that the gov puts on things is craziness and fear. There has been technology for ultra high fuel economy and such, but they aren't used, why? It's the money!!!!
100% WRONG again! You should do a bit more research before you post again.Even what you call the link is incorrect.
It should be :"vegetable oil fuel delivery system is illegal"
So don't say someone is "100% wrong" when you don't read the links you provide that you think back your claims.

Thank you for your e-mail concerning using waste vegetable oil or
straight vegetable oil as a fuel to power your diesel vehicle.
Waste vegetable oil or straight vegetable oil cannot legally be used in
vehicles. Raw vegetable oil or recycled greases (also called waste
cooking oil) that have not been processed into esters are not biodiesel,
and are not registered by EPA for legal use in vehicles. In addition,
vehicles converted to use these oils would likely need to be certified
by the EPA; to date EPA has not certified any conversions. These
conversions may also violate the terms of the vehicle warranty. For more
information on the certification process, please visit EPA's Web site
Biodiesel (for example B20) is a great fueling option. You can find
information on biodiesel at our website:
Biodiesel | SmartWay Grow & Go | US EPA
Also, please find below a link to biodiesel.org and a fact sheet on the
difference between biodiesel and vegetable oil. Using straight
vegetable oil in your vehicle can harm your vehicle and negate your

I don't give a rats behind if you care about it, it is legal!Oh, I noticed in your profile that you removed your EGR. That's legal... PS... I don't care if it's grandfathered by year in your state.
You must have noticed then that NOx emissions are higher with VO. Even then, emissions greatly vary with each engine type and fuel contents/quality.Diesel pollutes more than veg oil as a fuel. I know it does because I actually did a report on in in college
They are just as dirty as their predecessors, its the after treatment systems that make them appear clean.New diesels that I work on every day run extremely clean, with their after treatment systems
