I had heard rumours about the posibility of running diesels on alternative fuels before, but this book opened my eyes. If you have a practical bent and are willing to mess about with your car then you could potentially save a lot of money and the environment at the same time.
This book covers all the basic aspects of converting a diesel to run on used cooking oil, or converting the oil to biodiesel which can be used in any diesel engine. Whilst it's true you can find a lot of information on this subject on the web; you will find it gathered in on volume in this book.A word of warning though - to put these ideas into practise will take some time and effort. You need to be sufficently motivated to do it.Though it's not mentioned explicitly in the book I see no reason why you couldn't use these methods to power a generator either.
The book is clear and reasonably well laid out. A few more diagrams would have been nice, the books quality is what you expect for what must be a limited run by a minor publisher. If you are the sort of person who builds there own solar water heater or wind powered generators then this book is definitely for you. If you like to customise your car and like the idea of beating Mr Brown then you should read this.
You can't help but laugh at the thought of everybody smelling fish and chips as you drive past!
