When I began my search to find a greener, more environmentally friendly fuel for my diesel vehicle, I spent a little time researching the internet. As electric, wind and solar power are mere pipe dreams for a car the size of mine, I was left with only a few sensible choices. So what fuel options are available for the green hearted?
According to modern history of the diesel engine, the creator Rudolf Diesel apparently originally created his engine to run on oil (peanut oil apparently) as it seems even back then in 1892 petrol prices were high (gasp, what a shocker). It's believed he was a visionary and even then considered how the third world could benefit producing crops for conversion to oil for vehicle use.
Theory states that even today a bulk standard diesel engine will run very happily on vegetable oil. Hence I decided to covert my Toyota Landcruiser to run on Vegetable Oil.
