Default alternative fuels

I've been looking around and can't find anything about it here, but has anyone heard of or are you using the alternative fuel setup from bluegrassfuel.net . It looks pretty decent as far as the set up goes, looking for some input.

I looked over their website and they say to use ONLY petroleum based feed stock, including VEGETABLE oil.

If they don't know the difference between the two, they are charlatans.

BTW, don't put used motor oil in your fuel tank.... no matter what other people have done in the past.

It looks like they are suggesting you can use just about anything as fuel: used motor oil, dead tranny fluid, gear oil, cooking oil, and god alone knows what else. How about sawdust, sand, and the odd oak log?

Sorry, I'm skeptical, no thanks, and I've been using biodiesel for years.

I agree with the rest, stay away. From what I can tell, you dump vegetable oil, engine oil, tranmission oil or whatever other oil you have into a tank which runs through their filter to clean it and then blend that conconcotion with diesel and put it in your main tank. That is fuel blending and it is a big no-no with your TDI. My opinion is that is a no-no for any diesel as well...
