Can my unmodified Volkswagen Polo 1.9 SDI 9N 2003 run on Pure Plant Oil? (PPO)?

With todays oil prices, I've been searching for nice alternatives. Now I've heard rumors about cars with diesel engines running on ppo. Is that possible for my car? And can it run on 100% or 50% ppo?Can my unmodified Volkswagen Polo 1.9 SDI 9N 2003 run on Pure Plant Oil? (PPO)?
Wow, there is a lot of mis-information on Bio-diesel on this website, you CANNOT run straight bio diesel in any car without conversion, bio-diesel is acidic, it will disolve any organic materials this means Rubber!!! your hoses are Rubber! there are two options here, bio-diesel, or vegetable oil, there are up and downsides to both, bio diesel on a polo is quite a simple conversion, since there are no organic internal gaskets on that motor, all you need to do is replace your hoses with viton or tygothane, there are many links for this at as for vegetable oil, by far the best kit on the market is the kit by the advantage of this is you do not need to make your bio diesel or buy it wholesale(yes there are many places to buy it, you do not have to ';make it in your garage';), you can just put in Filtered straight vegetable oil. the downside to this is that the car cannot start from cold on vegetable oil, so you have a separate fuel tank for the oil, and you have to remember to flush out the fuel lines EVERY time you shut off the car, or it will not start again
