from: Coconut Oil as a Biofuel in Pacific Islands–
Challenges and Opportunities

The use of biofuels is nearly as old as
the diesel engine itself, as Mr. Diesel
designed his original engine running on
peanut oil. During periods in history
when regular diesel supply was
hampered seriously such as WW-II,
throughout the world vegetable
alternatives from different sources and
in different forms have been used.
