Should block up the oil galleries nicely when it mixes with the mineral oil.

I'm rather tickled by the idea that you could "run" an engine on healthy quantities of Flora sunflower oil. Hmm, polyunsaturated.... should help keep the cholesterol down...

it's ok as a fuel except it wears out the diesel pump - but if you're doing high miles you'll save enough to just buy another one off the shelf.

As a lubricant? no. Castor oil is different, it's very good, it's used as the lubrcant in model aeroplane engines and they'll rev to 25,000 RPM, go figure ;)

* share and enjoy *
