Hello,
i was looking at ebay for a heat exchanger to run cars on vegetable oil and i found a list of cars where it seems that the A6 2.5L TDI even dough has a common rail system is suitable to be fueled by vegetable oil.
Is this possible? Why the 2.5L TDI is good for veggie when others common rail engines are not?

Cheers.

I'm no expert in these maters but the Diesel design does lend itself to run on hydrocarbon chains other than those distilled from petrolium. Bio Diesel is quite popular here in the heartland of America and many farmers run this in their turbo Diesel powered machinery. Maybe there's an engineer on the forum that can explane in more detail?
