You will need a vehicle with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI).

The vegetable oil is just about impossible to ignite if it is sprayed out of a common gasoline port injector (45-60 pounds per square inch injection pressure). A GDI engine runs 2000 to 3000 PSI. This results in a much finer atomization of the fuel oil giving it a better flame front.

Look up the military applications of diesel fueled outboards and drone propeller engines. They are fueled with JP8 but are spark ignited. Emissions are horrid, but that isn't a problem for the military.
