Veg oil emissions

Any studies on the emissions (aside from smelling like lunch) put out by an engine running on straight vegetable oil?

Lot's, and Lot's,and Lot's! On average B-20 [20% biodiesel, 80% dinodiesel],reduces emissions of cancer-causing emissions by 50% or greater!

Soot,toxics,and smog-forming gasses are reduced by at least 25%. When you increase the percentage to B-100 emissions are reduced to almost 0. FABMANDELUX.

The closer to B-100 the better. Diesel prices are outragous and the fact that vegetable oil can processed entirely in the U.S. makes it a no brainer.
