We were stand-in managers of a private site at Saltash where a taxi driver, with a seasonal pitch on site, had a converted mercedes taxi. You could hear it coming from a mile away and it smelled of fish and chips! No kidding!
The chap had a contract with the local 'distiller' of used oils and reckoned he paid about half price and got similar mpg but it did smell awful - unless you were hungry.
Interesting comments on that site, but two thoughts come to mind.
1. TVO ( Tractor Vaporising Oil ) Petrol & Central Heating Oil can be mixed together to make a fuel, but you must have a licence from Customs & Excise.
2. For a few years we have not had a really hard frost. Diesel has problems waxing in really hard frost, I would have expected Cooking Oil to have been worse, but I would not like to be the first to find out.
hi :Sad: i just show all the talk off veg oil in motors means that derv is getting a bit dear to say the least we have had talk allready about a fuel protest coming the haulers are getting a bit miffed with such rises a company i deliver to with 90000 a week are paying a xtra 9000 a week in just two monthsoh: someone is coining it

Thanks for the info folks, i went to the pajero owners website and some are using
50/50 straight veg oil and others are using 100% bio-diesel with no ill effects.
Think we'll go the 50/50 route for now :thumb: cos to be honest i'm not to certain
of my own ability to produce bio-derv oh:
Looks a bit complicated from what i'm reading oh:
I'll let you know if anything happens :thumb:
