I don't know about running on motor oil, maybe you will want to think about running on used veggie oil. (which you can also get free)

there's plenty of veggie oil available for free from restaurants. The trick is to find veggie oil that's liquid at room temp's. The best places to find good wvo is chinese restaurants.

for more info on wvo, go to http://www.greasel.com. I woulnd't buy from them however, they're a bit pricey.

I have significantly more money invested in filtering equipment than i do in the conversion.
