Has anyone done it, and does it work.  What mixes are successful.

I would / am reluctant to run Traceys on it BUT having seen how good you are with your spanners  Laughing I would say try it and see, different folks will tell you all sorts, bit like running a 3.1 on 100%. My Bighorn idles rough as a bears behind but at around 70/30 veg to derv it seems a lot happier. so maybe fiil it up and as the gauge drops by a quarter refill with veg and go from there.

put one of your (many) old sleeve seals in a glass of veg oil and see how it goes.

Very Happy just a thought at moment. Didn't know if the injectors would handle it. Have heard that rapseed is ok, but wanted peoples opions. I can buy 20L for 14

i used to run my old 3.0 trooper on veg oil, would happily run at 50%,
sold it to work 5 years ago and it runs as limited use so now runs on red, hasnt been serviced for 4 years and still goes like a bat out of hell
