    I'd be interested to learn from you guys about running your cars on Veg Oils mixed with regular diesel,

    I've had a go at a 50/50 mix and found the car to run just the same as before but maybe a few bhp less, there is no real smell of chips
    out the back as I used 100% clean and un-used veg oil,

    your views and stories please,

    I own a Fish & Chip Shop, i don't put the vegetable oil in my cars, but my mate who owns a chippy aswell, has a Mitsubishi pick-up about 10 year old and he runs it off pure left over chip oil, he has just had an engine rebuild and has done over 100000 and it sometimes breaks down so his wife has to come and pick him up but it stinks of Fish & Chips, mobile fish and chips ;)
    To be honest i really wouldn't recommend you to use it although it may work it may not help your car when it starts to get older.

    Does your mate with the Mitsubishi filter and dry the oil before he chucks it in his tank?
