I have done a thread clean-up.

Anyone who considers using veg-oil fuel needs to read post #1 to see what is involved in one successful application. I have left a link here to another one that was not successful, as a reminder of what can happen.

And if you want to buy a *used* TDI that has a veg-oil conversion ... at a minimum, you need to have a serious conversation with the previous owner to establish whether they were knowledgeable and followed suitable procedures. If you have a situation like that described in post #1 and the vehicle itself checks out okay, maybe it's alright. If you have a "fail" then don't buy the car! It's certainly naive to assume that waste veg-oil is a "cleaner" fuel that has "better lubricity" ...

I'm going to lock this thread at this point. T's if you want to make another thread with your own write-up, I can arrange to have it merged with this thread even though it's locked, if you want to.
