Biodiesel, Vegetable Oil & LPG Comparison

Trying to compare Biodiesel, Veg Oil and LPG is a pointless exercise in truth. Obviously both Biodiesel and Vegetable Oil can run in diesel engines, whilst LPG only runs in Petrol engines.

However, there were certain factors that I wanted to compare between fuel types when I first looked at veg oil conversion, and these are fiscal and environmental. I can't claim the following is scientifically backed with impeachable data as it's made up but myself from snippets of information I was able to glean from the internet - a not always reliable source.

So with that said, take what you will from the below:

  LPG BIODIESEL VEG OIL
Fuel Cost Least expensive Slightly cheaper than standard diesel Cheaper than Biodiesel
Sustainable No Yes Yes
Fossil Fuel Content Most of it A small part None
Emissions 20% of standard petrol Some, but better than LPG Few, the best of the bunch
