Guest DAYTONA-BILL Posted September 25, 2010 Share Posted September 25, 2010 Hi all, i`m sure somebody must have asked this, but is it possible to run a marine deisel on chip oil?. I know someone that did it in their car, but wondered whether it is possible on a boat engine. I`ve been told you can`t run NEW cars on chip fat as modern deisels are of a much higher state of tune and are much more refined, whereas i would have thought an old deisel such as a BMC 1.5 or Perkins 4108 would run perfectly okay, is this so, because it would make running a boat a lot cheaper if you could get a regular supply from some local chippies and save them the hassle of having to pay to dispose their old oil at specialist sites?. I would also imagine it would be more environmentally friendly if you had a fuel spill, as it`s derived from vegetables. Just a hairbrained idea, but it`s worth a tought . Regards.............. Neil.
