Re: [DML] Convert To Biodiesel

I just did a homework assignment on bio-diesel. As far as the engine
replacement I don't have any direct knowledge of switching gas for diesel
engines. The most difficult part would still be the matching of the tranny
to the engine. Other than that the fuel tank could still be used but you may
have to replace the fuel pumping components. Here is the main web page I
found most useful during my research. You may find
better engine conversion information here or one of the other related pages.
