I am researching what kind of SVO I can use in diesels, and then want to compare with what is available in the tropical pacific where I live. I am particularly interested if there has been a listing made of suitable vegetable oils for diesel motors. For example, I know that coconut oil is used straight, blended with diesel, and blended with kerosene. I also know that a lighter fraction of the distillation products from Palm oil is used regularly, but I do not know if a lesser processed palm oil is usable, due to its longer chain / higher molecular weight oil content. It would be nice if there was a listing somewhere of what oils may and may not be used in diesel engines.

Can you help?
