Bob, Bry et al...
Here's a url from real people doin' it.
I am pretty sure the older TDI's are OK with a blended
mix of filtered fryer oil and diesel, but not strait
WVO.  These would be the TDI's with traditional
injection pump, not the new PD head with 4 individual
electronic injection pumps that run off of new cam

I would love to run Bio-juice in my Jetta TDI PD, but
have not read enough about others running Bio-diesel
in this engine.  It is the only car I own that I know
will start each day, so I don't want to mess that up
right now.......but hope to run my 1.9na Westy on it
when back on the road in a few months........
