Powering Your Vehicle with Straight Vegetable Oil
by Forest Gregg
The benefits of straight vegetable oil (SVO) as an alternate fuel for diesel engines are many. SVO is cheap, carbon-neutral, uses a waste product, and does not depend upon centralized corporate infrastructure.
An experienced designer and researcher in the straight vegetable oil field, author Forest Gregg has worked for Frybrid, the most respected vegetable oil conversion company in the US. He has sifted through the masses of contradictory, erroneous, and confusing information on the subject, extracting the very best information available. Chapters include:
- Vegetable oil sources, extraction and refining
- Chemical degradation
- Fuel properties
- System design
- Engine modifications
SVO is the only book available that explains exactly what is necessary to convert a diesel vehicle and how to do it properly. It gives readers the tools to sort through the different companies and online plans to find something that works well. While technical in nature, this fully illustrated book is very accessible. Each concept is introduced and described in great detail.
Designed to educate new consumers, it is also a resource for current conversion owners.
