Not yet Smile

It's a common engine, the 1KZ-TE, while hardly anyone has heard of the HiAce this engine is used in lots of things:

I have a workmate setting up a collection so hae can use on his Mondeo.

He has several filters to get rid of any left over doughnuts.. Hang on.. just thinking about cake..


OK back in the room.

And he is going to mix with 10% white spirit to thin it down.

He's also got a licence to collect the waste from local chippies.

He mentioned there is some sort of swap over system so the engine starts on diesel and then when warm swaps to a seperate tank with an oil mix..

Keep us posted if you go for it What a Face

Very Happy

I ran veg oil in my mid 90s Peugeot 406 for a while, just dumped it into the tank, no problem.
Then the prices of veg oil went up - doh! I just used new sunflower oil, safer than eating it.

the only problem with mixing it is that the veg oil smells like a chip shop so there's a great temptation to smell it and breath it in - one must be constantly aware that it's mostly toxic diesel fumes, so may not be very safe around kids or the uninformed.  Not a problem if you go pure veg oil though.

Oh and get it out for MOTs as the emissions equipment didn't seem to like it.

Not sure how to avoid mixing but a double solenoid switch (on both feed and return) to a separate tank is probably the best, but the fuel filter, pump and return lines will still cross contaminate to some extent.

The good news is that diesel fuel line switching solenoids are easy to get.
