National VegOil Board

I began the National VegOil Board in 2006 with a web site and an idea to collect all of the scattered information about straight vegetable oil as a fuel into one place.  The idea expanded into unification of the individual businesses developing VegOil as a fuel.

While the NVOB was successful in bringing information to the public, forming a coalition of the business owners proved impossible.  The NVOB ceased accepting new members or updating the site in 2008.  The web site was left up until 2010 in the hopes that someone else would pick up the idea and carry it forward.
