Heat content of SVO/WVO

I know that the heat content of biodiesel is around 5% to 10% less than dino fuel, but does anyone know the relative heat content of SVO/WVO?

Im not sure but I hear it is a little less than Diesel. I can tell you this I cant feel any loss of power running it! But I have only used a little over 650 gals. of WVO so far
