Can a car run on chicken grease instead of petroleum?

I’ve heard that a car can be converted to run on chicken grease and a small amount of oil by installing a conversion kit. Is this true?

    Yes I have actually seen many articles on that. I would get a junk car and try it but I dont have a car period. That would be better for our environment. And just think, one day we all can come home in our cars and fry chicken in the engine for dinner. Kill two birds with one stone, eh.

    I’ve read accounts of cars running on kitchen grease, but I don’t know what is involved in the conversion, and what cars can be converted.

    A diesel engine can be modified to run on used vegetable oil or liquified fat. If it’s not a diesel, stick to gas or ethanol.

    You can get a diesel engine car to run on oil from deepfat fryers, you just need to add a fuel additive and make sure you pay the fuel duty, its supposed to be better for the environment and works out cheaper then diesel at the pump.

    Look it up sometime, if you just must know. But, I do know that there are people that recycle the frying grease from restaurants & use it for their vehicles fuel source. I sometimes see people on Freecycle asking for the grease. Join a Freecycle chapter near you, & ask for some grease yourself!
