Too bad for those who bought vegistroke kits in the last few years since their warranties are lost. At least they can still buy parts since another company bought the inventory:

I just converted another vehicle using parts I made myself and bought from the hardware store. A few days after I fitted it I took the truck away on holidays with the family and drove a bit over 2500 completely trouble free KM. Didn't even have to change a filter.

I much prefer to be self reliant and make up my own systems I understand and can source parts for anywhere at all.

For those that bought one of these kits, it seems pretty pretty poor form to me to just say, " We won't be honoring warranty claims" and leaving people to pay extra to rectify any faults in the systems they were sold of which there seems to be several known ones. I would have thought that the vendors had a legal as well as moral responsibility to honour what they advertised and people undoubtedly paid for in the price of the product they bought.

A couple of years back i was worried about Veg getting too popular. I was mistaken in my concerns it seems. While I thought the veg fuels thing was a fad for many and that there were many vendors just jumping on the bandwagon to make a quick buck, I never thought the whole thing would go downhill so quick and be abandoned to the degree it has by users and vendors alike.

It will be real interesting to see how things go and how short peoples memories are when fuel goes up again and the flash in the pan craze starts all over.
