The article reports on the possible increase in the use of vegetable oil in modified diesel engines following the decision of HM Revenue & Customs to convert engines for biofuel. According to Dominic Goodman of Biomotors, engines for biofuel can be recouped in three months. The increase in the demand for vegetable oil is expected to benefit the vegetable oil market.
