I'm getting a 110 next week (hurray!) and have also been wondering about
using Modified Waste Vegetable Oil (as opposed to Straight Vegetable Oil)
from these guys
What bothers me is this: If, as they seem to claim, it's just as
efficient as diesel, and an effective lubricant, and environmentally OK,
and only 70p/litre, then why aren't (for example) all the taxi drivers in
town using it? They can't be unaware of it's existence, they would surely
be delighted to save money? So there must be a reason, and I'd love to
know what it is.
On a related issue, does anyone have any CO2 emissions figures for this
kind of fuel, other than the figures produced by the manufacturers
