Q: Is biodiesel the same as straight vegetable oil?
A: No. Using straight vegetable oil requires modifications in vehicles, such as heating tanks, parallel fuel circuits, etc. Diesel vehicles using straight vegetable oil, must first heat the vegetable oil in order to "thin" it. This allows the fuel pump to dispense it to the cylinders.
