Although slow, personal use of diesel is gaining ground. Honda has the Diesel CR-V coming to the states in the next model year or 2.

Also, the more people talk about it, the more interest it will gather. Maybe not all people with diesels will convert, but it is more people aware of it. I have a close friend that I have helped him convert 2 diesels to run off of WVO. We live in the Chicagoland area. First was a 1985 K5 Blazer, the second is and he is currently driving, 2005 Chevy Silverado HD Duramax 2500 diesel. Has a secondary 45 gallon tank with coolant lines that run to it to keep the grease / WVO liquified. We have talked to local restaurants and they are fine with us taking the WVO.

The point is, the more people that talk about it, the more of a chance it will catch on. I would gladly pay someone to filter and store WVO in the winter time than fetching myself, so I would be willing to pay $.50 a gallon for WVO instead of the always higher than gasoline $2.89 diesel.

Also, think of the commercial industry...
