Is cooking oil a better fuel than diesel?

    Well, yes and no.  If you’re talking about powering a car, then cooking oil is a better fuel because it’s more environmentally sustainable to re-use cooking oil than it is to create diesel fuel, but…you can’t just power a car with cooking oil.  Even so-called “veggie oil” cars need diesel fuel to run.  They actually have a two-stage engine like a hybrid electric does.  They use veggie oil on the highways and diesel (or bio-diesel) in stop-and-go traffic.  So it is a better fuel, but it’s unfortunately not an either/or situation.
