The wholesale price of Canola was about $1.15 or $1.25 per litre in Ontario
when I checked last fall.  That will only look like a bargoon when diesel
fuel goes appreciably higher and that assumes vegetable oils won't follow.

I guess you are using used veggy oil and that is great for those few of us
that can get a supply of the stuff and have the means to deal with it.

I hope to be doing that myself soon.
