    Have you guys ever seen or heard of this on Isuzus? I know you can convert Ford, Chevy, and Dodge diesels over to grease/veggie oil. I was just wandering if you can covert commerical styles over to. With gas prices continuely going up, it would be nice to have someone pay to have me work filled up.

    Rudolph Diesel invented the engine that bears his name in 1892. He used vegetable oil in it back then.

    I understand that, but I guess my question is; Is there a kit to convert it over? I know diesels will burn just anything flammable, but like on the Fords and such, you have a tank, pump, etc to make it run correctly.

    veggy oil is this cold, basicly unburnable. Those kits have heaters with them (along with pumps and what not) to make it burn. But to be honest, a diesel is a diesel, if you can run a dodge, chevy or ford on veggy oil you can run an isuzu on it.

    Do you know of any websites for the ford/chevy/dodge kits?
