Considering some cars which could run on kerosene, including the Ford Model T, maybe if you could vaporize Diesel fuel it would work reasonably too, yet it may be harder to vaporize...

I think you would have far better luck running biodiesel in a carbureted engine then filtered fry oil.
Not only biodiesel is thinner, and most likely easier to vaporize, it's also easier to mix with gasoline and ethanol if you want to dillute it enough to eventually not have the need to pre-heat it.
