Hi there, do you know if you can convert a 1998 to 2000 Nissan Patrol to run on SVO? Your car sounds fantastic. Cheers

Simon Mc,
If the engine has an injector pump, it can be converted to run on veggie oil. Different engine types (IDI Vs DI) and some IP makes may need special treatment. The conversions which have been shown to have the least impact on engine longevity are those which use 2 tanks (one for startup and shutdown, the other for veggie oil).
Have a search on "Used Cooking Oil" and find one of the first threads, which shows the conversion I did on a Mercedes 300D. The principles are the same for most diesels which have an IP.

Thanks Tony, I am new to the game and looking for a diesel wagon that I can convert to SVO. I only have around $15K to spend on the car but need some room as we are about to have a baby. We are going to be living out in the bush next year so would like something reliable. Have looked at freelanders, peugeots and patrols. Do you have any suggestions? Running on SVO is our goal by the end of the year. Cheers

If you are after a 4WD, there are plenty out there. Body styles include Personell carriers, station wagons, trayback & crew cabs utes, are all available.
A crew cab ute with trayback appeals to me, for the under tray location of the added Veg oil tank, but with plenty of inside space for your family.
