Vegetable oil as a diesel fuel


Paper, American Society of Agricultural Engineers (85-3069): 28 pp
Vegetable oil as a diesel fuel
A review of current work is presented. Highly saturated oils could be used, but would reduce engine life. Esters are possibly a direct substitute for diesel fuel; low temp. operation is a problem. Vegetable oils are more expensive than petroleum based fuels at the present time.
