A diesel to vegetable oil conversion kit allows a diesel vehicle or diesel machinery to fuel with SVO – straight vegetable oil / WVO recycled waste vegetable oil !
This intelligent fuel system warms vegetable oil to ideal fuel temperature and then automatically switches from diesel fuel to vegetable oil power if you have switched the kit on. For very short distances or short running time also on your machinery you would not switch the kit on, you would power these times on diesel.
There are no modifications to the engine necessary, it’s a second fuel supply system that’s integrated in the existing fuel system.
Chemical processing is not required – Just a good source of filtered oil, which can be collected as used cooking oil from restaurants, grown from a variety of crops, or purchased in bulks.
The best suitable vegetable/plant oils as fuel for converted diesel engines are: canola, rapeseed, sunflower, cotton seed, mustard seed, soy, jatropha
Tests and studies have shown that heated vegetable oil has nearly the same properties as diesel fuel and burns just as effectively in most diesel engines.
Based on long-term experiences many diesel engines can be powered with straight vegetable oil after a conversion, provided that the motor is maintained and in good condition (compression, injection system, glow plugs, …).
We use and offer the leading ATG 2-tank conversion system because it is the most reliable and gentlest system on the market. More than 10,000 diesel vehicles and machinery have been converted with the ATG conversion kit.

We are working with this ATG system successfully for more than 11 years here in Australia and have tested it ourselves during this time on several own vehicles and machinery without any faults.
If you have fitted a 2-tank vegetable oil conversion kit to your diesel car, bus, truck, generator, bobcat, wood chipper etc then you can safe a lot of money by using cleaned used vegetable oil and should you run out of vegetable oil, then you can switch back to diesel at any time. You can also use the empty vegetable oil tank for diesel as a long range tank, provided the tank is suitable for diesel, you then have to switch the kit on to reach that tank. The conversion kit can also be transferred to another vehicle with the same specifications.
Did you know that if you run your diesel vehicle or machinery on straight vegetable oil you reduce the greenhouse gas emissions by 80%?
This is a significant contribution in favour of the environment!
