I wondering when these new vegetable based oils are going to come onto the market. Any ideas on what they are, who's going to do it ? (I'm not after trade secrets, just general information).

Doesn't make any difference to me. No unsaturated vegetable oil is ever going in an engine of mine. The paint industry calls them drying oils because on exposure to air or heat, they combine with oxygen and solidify.

I don't see too much of a problem with fuel stored slightly above room temperature and consumed fairly quickly. Same for soy bio diesel. Oh yes, clean it out before storing very long. Caster oil is not unsaturated. The gelling may have been due to hydrogen bonding of the hydroxyls. Chemically processed dehydrated castor oil is a good drying oil with -CH=CH-CH=CH- replacing the hydroxyls.

As soon as the price goes down, production goes up, and they find compatible additives, then you'll see more of them going into formulations. Some ester-based oil formulations are now using singly or in combination vegetable oils. Right now, fats and esters of fatty acids are synthesized and used in a lot of boutique oils.

I just replied in the Motul post above. But I was positive I read somewhere that Redline used to promote themselves as using vegetable based oils in the past. Claiming they were more stable than other sourced oils. I havent seen anything lately but I did read that in the past in literature they produced. Not sure what is up with it though. True or not ?

Coconut oil, unlike most vegetable oils, is saturated. All the natural oils are esters of glycerine. The animal fats are mostly saturated, and the vegetable ones unsaturated. Saturated compounds are naturally less reactive than unsaturated ones. You can add hydrogen to unsaturated materials and reduce or eliminate the unsaturation. A saturated oil containes all the hydrogen it can.
