Converting a diesel engine to run on vegetable oil by using a conversion kit is something the competent DIYer could attempt, but if you’re NOT very mechanically minded, I personally wouldn’t advise it.
I’m lucky, I live near Wolverhampton where DieselVeg (DieselVeg no longer trade - click here for other fitters) were based and these guys were the accredited expert installers of the German built ATG conversion system I had fitted. However when I was there I met other customers who had traveled considerable distances just to use this firm, many of whom were on their second or third conversion.
Personally I think cars are not only expensive things, but they’re deadly if they go wrong. Consequently I’d always recommend having a conversion system professionally installed.
