[DML] Re: Convert To Biodiesel



Converting to bio-diesel (or electric for that matter) you will be
removing and fabricating a custom powertrain. No small feat and after
you spend all that money there is no way you will recoup it by
"saving" on gasoline. Performance will probably be even less than you
now have, no one will be able to service the car except you or the
shop that does the conversion, the car may have little or no resale
value, you may have all kinds of problems with the authorities
concerning inspection and emissions, and if the car is financed you
are not supposed to modify it. Just a few of the considerations BEFORE
you go off on this project. For what it's worth, it may not smell like
french fries, Chinese restaurants also use a lot of cooking oil so it
may smell like Chinese food! It depends on the source of your oil.
