how in God's green earth do you have a biodiesel vehicle. I need to hear more. Did you do it yourself or are they out there. I am so interested...

Many members of this forum are interested in diesel engines, but they have nothing to do with the Smallest Car that can tow, so how about making these posts a separate thread?

Some people even scavenge free used vegetable oil from restaurants, filter it, and burn it in their diesels.
