Ever since Joshua Tickells book From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank: The Complete Guide to Using Vegetable Oil as an Alternative Fuel came out in Dec 2000 folks have been producing and selling books, videos, CDs, and DVDs on the subject. Tickells book (commonly referred to at FTFTTFT) can probably be given a lot of the credit for jump starting the "grassroots bio-fuel movement" by providing a starting point for on-line discussions on VO fuel that blossomed into an on-line VO conversion community. That on-line community is mainly responsible for nearly all of the major developments in VO conversion over since FTFTTFT was released. And with very few exceptions the books, videos, CDs, and DVDs that have been produced are essentially condensed versions of the discussions which took place on the discussion boards and forums prior to their production. As a result the information they contain is usually outdated shortly after they are produced.

Never the less they can be very helpful as long as the reader realizes this..and that a few have very biased and or incorrect information. There has been at least one DVD produced that is little more than an advertisement for a particular Kit maker which contains very ..very inaccurate information. 

Below is a list of books, videos, CDs, and DVDs on VO conversion.
I have attempted to arrange them by the date they were produced..oldest at the top..newest at the bottom. If you cannot find a VO conversion book, video, CD, or DVDs in the list please just post as much info as you can and I will try to include it.

If you want to critque, review, or discuss of any of these books, videos, CDs, and DVDs please feel free to do so.

The following links lead to the the least expensive source. If you find a cheaper source please let me know.
