yes it does, burning biodegradable oil instead of fossil fuel is better, less soot and more power, atleast compared to the kerosene"diesel" we have here

yes, saves me quite a bit of money since I only buy canola oil when it is on promo and cheaper than the gas station crap

hopefully my friend will start filtering his WVO so i can start with that(even cheaper) before it gets cold again

the downside is that winter is no good with blending, oil turns into butter instead of liquid.... and we all know that fuel lines in traditional cars can only transport liquids right?

another downside is how BLENDING ONLYS WORKS ON OLD CARS like mine with mechanical fuel injection and preferably prechambers, common rail and all these electrical injection systems cannot handle the increase in viscosity, so the limit is said to be cars built around year 1995 and earlier or thereabout, it depends on the car. Some might even be earlier (or later)
