[DMCForum] Greasel/biodiesel conversion for DeLoreans

Since the nasty political tone has disappeared from this thread for
now, I have some questions of my own some of which Martin may be able
to answer. I may have asked in the past but forget the answer.

1. Rumor was, the PRV was originally a diesel. True? Was the V6
version ever a diesel? Could it be converted?

2. If the PRV could be modified for this fuel, the "grease" tanks
could probably be inserted into the rear pontoons without much
hassle. Consider; veg oil is not explosive so the tanks don't require
central location or heavy shielding.

3. If the PRV could not be converted, is there a compatible diesel
engine that would easily mate up to our transmission?

4. Since diesels cause combustion by compression (no spark), does
that mean that their compression pressures are much higher?

I'd definitely be willing to boil grease if I owned a normal home and
got out of this townhouse. I'd also be willing to flout the law if
burning grease for fuel became illegal. What are they going to do?
Pull over every single car and run a chemical test? Semi trucks are
one thing, but chasing every single citizen trying to save a buck
when they're not stealing or harming anyone is crazy.
