SVO
Powering Your Vehicle with Straight Vegetable Oil
By Forest Gregg
The benefits of straight vegetable oil (SVO) as an alternate fuel for diesel engines are many. SVO is cheap, carbon-neutral, uses a waste product, and does not depend upon centralized corporate infrastructure.

An experienced designer and researcher in the straight vegetable oil field, author Forest Gregg has worked for Frybrid, the most respected vegetable oil conversion company in the US. He has sifted through the masses of contradictory, erroneous, and confusing information on the subject, extracting the very best information available. Chapters include:

Vegetable oil sources, extraction and refining
Viscosity
Chemical degradation
Fuel properties
Contaminants
System design
Engine modifications

SVO is the only book available that explains exactly what is necessary to convert a diesel vehicle and how to do it properly. It gives readers the tools to sort through the different companies and online plans to find something that works well. While technical in nature, this fully illustrated book is very accessible. Each concept is introduced and described in great detail.

Designed to educate new consumers, it is also a resource for current conversion owners.

About the Contributor(s)
Forest Gregg, a former researcher with Frybrid -- a leader in the development of vegetable oil conversion systems -- has worked as a designer, fabricator and installer of SVO conversion systems.

Unbiased and objective? Not likely.
Why would someone want to buy an advertising promo for Frybrid?

IMHO, Should this be in "classified ads"? or the circular file?

hes not affiliated with frybrid, he just apprenticed with em for a few years. this book is written as an individual who has done massive amounts of research, and as such, is worth a good read. not a step by step guide by any means, more of a comprehensive informational manual. check it out!

IMHO, veggie conversions are like spaghetti sause, some use lots of spices, others not so much.

It's a matter of taste.

Who's right? who's way over-kill, or not adaquate, and at what temps.

Guidence from a source $$$, not always pertenant to your situation.

If your in LA.CA. you can get away with a lot more than Fargo in winter.

Viscosity is the focus, if this book helps, more power to you.

Perhaps a series of books, for all temps. and WVO types,
That's, this, forum, check it out!
