Running on vegetable oil

Written by Alan on June 7th, 2010. Posted in Vehicle modifications

The current system I am using has evolved over about ten years and three vehicles. I shall detail here a distillation of all the tips and tricks that I have found works best for me and my engine. One thing I found out very early on during my research was that there are many different opinions and ways of running a vehicle on Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO). I do not claim that my approach is the best or the correct one, but as you will see, the results seem to suggest that I am not too far off. However please note; I cannot be held responsible for any damage to anybody’s engine as a result of adopting anything detailed here.
