You could run the Listers on straight veg oil...
Just keep it warm...
Cut the eletric hog stove...
Use the propane to cook and dry...
No need to loose the conversion to electric...
KISS... ;)

Yes they run fine on veggie oil, especially free waste oil, from the local Japanese restaurant (soy is best). The room just smells like french fries. The trick is a two way supply line. You run for 10 minutes on straight diesel and when warm you switch over with no loss of power. There are many other options and I have mixed in engine oil, peanut oil (Rudolph Diesels original favorite fuel when he invented the engine :shock: ) and other things. Ah but that is another thread for another time.
