    Germany: 330 hp tractor engine to run on raw vegetable oil

    Deutz tractor engines to run on raw, unprocessed vegetable oil

    The first tractors with engines purpose-built to run on pure rapeseed oil with full warranty will appear at Germany's Agritechnica show in Hanover from 13th-17th Nov.
    Deutz – which already manufactures engines specially designed for operation with 100% RME biodiesel – simplifies farmer fuel requirements still further with its “Natural Fuel Engines” fully guaranteed for fuelling with crude, unprocessed vegetable oil.
    Certain Deutz Fahr tractors and a new Fendt model will be launched with the pioneer engines which range from 80hp to 330hp.
    The system features two tanks, one for conventional diesel and the other for cold-pressed rapeseed oil or any other vegetable oil of comparable standard.
    At the heart of the new four and six cylinder power-plants is an electronic fuel management system that automatically starts the engine with conventional diesel and switches to pure vegetable oil when the right operating temperature is reached.
    Imagine: farmers grow their own vegetables and press them to make their own fuel. They don't pay any fuel taxes, and no energy is used to process it into biodiesel.

    Good for Deutz... Leave it to them to pioneer this! My father owns a Deutz. Very very well built tractor and engine.
