i do remember a case in the US i believe which captured headlines. It was about a group of people who used "used cooking oil" as substitute for diesel. I can only find this article http://journeytoforever.org/biodiesel_mikeadd.html. ;)

What's your biodiesel going to be made from? Corn? Sugar cane? Palm Oil? Besides, the EROEI for biodiesel is either negative or a very small positive figure compared to dear old light, sweet crude.

My students discussed this idea in their energy issues presentation.

I have spoken to the chemistry teacher about trying to make the formulations in our lab...will update
