I've been looking into the process of running Diesel engines on pure waste vegetable oil (without the toxic process of converting it to biodiesel first.)

It takes some converting, but it sounds like a good idea in the end.
I was wondering what people thought about the various cheaper Diesel cars out there? I'm not afraid of maintenance costs as long as the parts aren't _too_ dear (I've got time, not money.)
The cars I'm thinking about at present are the Merc 300D (SD turbo diesel too expensive, 240D too slow) or a 505TD. I'm reluctant to choose another 505, though, cos I kind of want something new (2 505s in a row already.)
Can anyone recommend other Diesels in the sub-$5000 department?
I was thinking about Mazda 626 Diesels, but they seem prone to cracked heads...
And I briefly considered a Gemini Diesel, then I slapped myself in the face. wink . Although fitting a later-model Isuzu Turbo Diesel motor to a pre-fully-sikked Gemini could be fun.
