The vegoil will seep into the crankcase, especially if you let cold oil
into a cold engine (like running diesel-secret). It happens on 2-tank
heated systems to a lesser extent.
Vegoil mixed with engine oil means thick goopy polymerized oil. If you
run vegoil be sure to change your oil frequently. Synthetic engine oil
will help a little. Personally, I change synthetic every 3000-5000
Here's the infopop discussion on "Things you can do to get maximum
engine life from a VO converted diesel."
or the tinyurl:
81 1.6NA Pickup - 5 years on SVO
82 1.6NA parts Pickup
91 1.6eco Jetta - 1 year on SVO
94 1.6TD FrankenJetta (8v conversion) - 2 years on SVO
