    Been burning Bio for several years now. Trucks, tractors, mowers... how can you beat $.50 - $.75/gal.? No problems. Mix with K-1 clear in the winter though, to prevent gelling/freezing.

    I was watching them convert veg oil on dirty jobs last night, I don't know the disadvantages but it seems like a pretty good idea.
