    The inventor of the diesel engine actually designed his engine to run on vegetable oil (after an initial design with coal dust – see document here). The popularity of the idea spiked several times in history, notably during the Second World War, and again during the “energy crisis” of the 1970s.

    Here are some links on pros and cons, and how to make the modifications, if you’re interested.
