CAN LINSEED OIL BE PROSSESED THE SAME AS VEG. OIL FOR DIESEL FUEL

Absolutely not. The reason

Absolutely not. The reason linseed oil is useful as the base of oil paints and as a wood finish is because it is a drying oil. It has a very high iodine value, which means that the fatty acid tails in the oil have a lot of double bonds. These cross link and turn to epoxies, which would ruin your engine and fuel system. The Journey to Forever website lists iodine values and other oil properties for many plant and animal fats.
