Run straight vegetable oil (SVO)...

Why bother with making biodiesel? OM617 engines will tolerate anything up to and including 100% SVO.

Follow these simple instructions:

1. Collect fry oil
2. Filter meticuloulsy to 5 microns
3. Pour into your MBZ fuel tank to mix with existing diesel in any ratio
4. Enjoy motoring with less saturated fat!

And don't forget to sniff your exhaust for a whiff of "Corn Oil Goodness."

I ran all of my errands today on 3 qts of "Hill Country" brand corn oil...HONEST. No diesel was used. Period.

Marlene loves the stuff.
