Dr. Rudolph Diesel invented his "Rational Heat Engine" to run on any oil readily available to people in remote areas. A peanut farmer could use peanut oil as fuel for it, a cattle rancher could render fat and use that. So with that in mind, you can already use whatever oil you like. The fuel must be the right viscosity and have proper lubricity. Use fuel hose for any lines that will carry the oil. Hardware store hose will quickly rot. This project can be very very difficult if you want to do it perfectly.
