Do I Need to Convert My Vehicle?
There is abundant confusion surrounding this question. As stated earlier, any diesel engine will run on biodiesel with little or NO modification. The confusion stems from people hearing about cars being converted to run on straight vegetable oil (SVO). Biodiesel is NOT SVO. Biodiesel has been altered on a molecular level to remove the glycerin from the oil.
SVO conversions involve either replacing fuel injectors with specially made ones or adding additional fuel tanks, filters and heaters to utilize straight vegetable oil. Biodiesel is a cleaner, simpler, more straightforward fuel that is much easier to use. Also neither SVO nor Biodiesel can be used in an internal combustion engine that normally runs on gasoline. You MUST start with a diesel engine.
