ABSTRACT ELEVEN vegetable oils that can be grown as domestic field crops were identified for inclusion in a com-parative study of chemical and fuel properties. Sample lots of each oil were subjected to ASTM tests appropriate for diesel fuels. The tests identified some problem areas with vegetable oil fuels. The oil samples were also characterized chemically and certain fuel properties were correlated to chemical compositions.
