Can anyone put me in touch with someone that has a biodiesel converted car engine?

To my understanding mileage and power remain about the same as conventional diesel.

Maintenance would be a little more, since you have the addition of a second fuel system (one for 'regular diesel', one for grease/oil,) combined with the added potential for "human error" maintenance problems.  (i.e. not fully filtered oil, leaving the fuel selector on "grease/oil" when shutting down which can cause oil residue in the lines/engine if it gets cold.)

(Before we bought our Prius, the other car we were looking at was a Volkswagen diesel that we were going to convert, so I did all the research back then.)


And the BIG thing: Do you have a ready supply of used cooking oil?  Portland has a number of greasel-conversions, so supply might be tight - you can't just go buy used cooking oil from a central supply.  You can go get unused cooking oil, but that sort of defeats the purpose of a greasel recycling used oil.

It's like a gym.  Lots of people signed up, but never come. :)
