Book Description

"There is a lot of information out there about the pros and cons of biofuels - more cons than pros recently. but still, nothing seems to beat Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO). It's cheap, carbon-neutral, uses a waste product and does not depend upon centralized corporate infrastructure. And now there is a definitive guide to fueling your diesel engine with this alternative fuel. SVO-Powering Your Vehicle with Straight Vegetable Oil cuts through the masses of often contradictory, erroneous and confusing information on the subject and provides a practical guide. It also, importantly and uniquely, explains what is necessary to convert a diesel engine and how to do it properly. there are facts, figures, charts, grpahs, diagrams, and lots of technical detail but, with all its detail, the book is still very accessible. Gregg knows his stuff; he is a former researcher with Frybrid, a leading developer of veggie oil conversion systems, and has worked as a designer, fabricator and installer of SVO conversion systems." - Natural Life Magazine The benefits of straight vegetable oil (SVO) as an alternate fuel for diesel engines are many.
