It depends, there used to be many vegoilforums, but now many are gone.... most people there reported same fuel milage or slightly worse with vegoil compared to diesel but this was about 10 years ago (damn i am getting old)

All i know for sure is that the kerosene "diesel" in gas stations here is a lot worse than vegoil, hvo and real diesel from rest of europe/the world
