You can run a 200Tdi on veg-oil, but the proportion depends on the temperature - if you heat the oil you can use it neat. There are lots of comments in the LPG, Bio Diesel and Alternative Fuels section.

Here is one of many which may cover your exact question.

i use SVO with diesel mix depending on tempreture.

At the moment im using about 2 parts deisel to 1 part SVO mix.

No mods needed to tdi apart from carreying spare fuel filters and regular engine changes.

High Percent blends of Veg aren't reccomended for Direct Injection engines due to the damage caused when starting from cold - and also Idling with low piston crown temperatures.

Basically cold veg doesn't spray properly out of the injector - therefore it doesn't burn properly and sticks to the pistons and cylinder walls, this gums up the piston rings...

a proper twin tank conversion is the proper way to go, start on diesel, warm through, then switch to veg - 100% veg if you wish.
