Convert your diesel engine to vegetable oil

Learn all you need to know to convert your diesel vehicle to run on pure vegetable oil. This is perhaps the most environmentally sound approach to motoring.

The course covers both methods of conversion – single tank and two-tank. Participants will be involved with the step-by-step conversion of a vehicle, learning the practical considerations of kit installation. Other subjects covered are: how diesel engines work, vehicle suitability, the sourcing and use of new and used vegetable oil, where to buy components, fuel duty law, environmental impact and health and safety.

The course assumes no existing knowledge of diesel engines. It is suitable for those who are ‘hands-on’ as well as those who might consider getting their car converted by professionals but want to be informed about the technology and how to use it.

Participant feedback:
“The course gave me a huge amount of knowledge in a concise, practical and methodological manner, in fantastic settings with a great community atmosphere.”
