Re: Electric hybrid Inboard Vs Diesel

Go Diesel and make your own Bio-d and store it in a second tank. I ran my F-250 Powerstroke on straight veggie oil for 100,000 miles with a VOTECH kit that heated the oil before injecting. Sold it to a farmer who uses it on his farm now as a farm vehicle and only runs veggie oil. But for smaller diesels your better off making bio-d and running that with out modifying the engine. Start on diesel and switch on the fly to bio-d. Have to make sure all gaskets and hoses are synthetic as the bio will dissolve them.
