Robert, people do it all the time. They've run cars on straight veggie
oil for hundreds of thousands of miles. It works perfectly and doesn't
clog anything. Further, we're not talking about just dumping the oil
into a stock car. You need to make some minor modifications first.

This is only necessary if you want to run biodiesel in a stock
vehicle. If you perform the proper modifications, you can run straight
veggie oil.
