I think most people here are modding small gasoline cars.

I am very interested in biodiesel and waste vegetable oil conversion but would want to do it with a small pickup truck or some other utilitarian, yet still fuel efficient vehicle.

Getting pretty hard to find Rabitt pickup trucks nowadays!

I have met a local restaurant owner who has a large Dodge diesel pickup truck. I believe he was just adding filtered waste oil directly into his tank as a blend to petro diesel to thin it out.

He hasn't had any trouble with it. Pretty bold to do that with a big fancy new truck.
