"I found my VW on E-bay. I had bid on a few others but was out bid- my Jetta had a buy now price of $1995- I snapped it up!
I live near Bruno, MN (50 miles south of Duluth), though the car was in York, PA.
It was only $150 & 33-34 hours by Greyhound. I was still layed-off from work so no problem. It was everything the seller claimed, but without the rust we have in such abundance here in MN! I got 47 MPG on the 1350 mile trip back. I could hardly wait to get back to work to afford the conversion to WVO!
My mom thought I was nuts for messing with a car that gets such excellent fuel mileage. I think she was driving a Cadillac at the time.... 5 weeks after I bought the car (Memorial Day weekend), I had the car running on straight vegetable oil! Everything I needed for the conversion was on the Web"
"This DIY waste vegetable oil conversion is based around three simple points which are outlined below.
1. At 160° Fahrenheit used vegetable oil will act the same in the injection system as diesel fuel.
2. The Vegetable oil must be filtered at least as well as the stock fuel system filters diesel and the filters should be large and easy to replace.
3. The motor must be shut down and started up on diesel (or biodiesel).
