1987 Volkswagen Westfalia Biodiesel


We’ve seen some great diesel Westies here, but today’s brings the added benefits of a biodiesel conversion. Built by a reputable Bay Area VW mechanic for himself, it’s clean through and through and has a nearly-new TDI swap. Now you can get over 30 mpg in your camper AND have the delicious smell of french fries follow you wherever you go! A solar roof adds to the green credentials, and some other nicely refreshed parts like a new tent make it a pretty great package. Bidders are going a bit wild, with a huge amount of bids pushing this up into top non-Syncro territory.

1986 Mercedes 500SEC Biodiesel Conversion – REVISIT

Mercedes 500SEC biodiesel2

The Mercedes-Benz 500SEC diesel conversion we featured back in June is still on offer in the Netherlands. The seller, Jens, contacted us with the following information:

The Mercedes SEC diesel is stil for sale, runs fine on vegetable oil and also on diesel or a mix for more than 403,100km without any technical problems. It starts even at minus 10 degrees celsius thanks to the fuel heating filter system which first runs on battery power and later swiches to motor heat convection. I dropped the price to €6,000, because The Netherlands raised taxes to a level that is no longer interesting for me to keep this dream machine on the road. It will stay in my barn until sombody is interested. Even in ten or twenty years it will be a great car! You can contact me at
