The Vegfalia is a 1987 Vanagon GL Syncro with a newly rebuilt (1000 miles) 1.9L VW Turbo Diesel engine and a Greasecar two-tank vegetable oil kit installed. It is officially registered as diesel by the CA DMV, with no smog requirement. The vehicle starts and stops on diesel, biodiesel, or blend fuels, with a 15 gallon VO tank that can be filled with anything from filtered vegetable oil, to used motor oil, to regular diesel. With the included filtration system and solar panel, this is the ultimate green “Mad Max” machine. Asking $30,000, leave a comment if you’re interested!

I will go through all systems and procedures with buyer, I have spent many hours making this as simple and streamlined as possible. I will also include Vegfalia graphics files and the website if desired.
With the proper licensing, a Square card reader, a small trailer, and a 300 gallon fuel tote, this setup can be an instant alternative fuel business, complete with office and fuel pickup, processing, and sales system.
The bad: The original owner sideswiped the vehicle, with a minimal amount of front end damage that is only noticeable if you take off the front grill. The sliding door and rear quarter panel have been repaired and paint-matched with a small amount of bubbling at the rear passenger seam and some of the repair work on the door. Despite this, the body is overall in good to very good condition.
