    what car have you got ??? if it is a direct injection tdi the piston crowns are recessed(thats the combustion chamber -the old ones had flat piston crowns combustion chamber in the head- so there was a chance of oil contaminating engine oil)---take note---the CR-common rail systems do not like pure veg/sunflower oil it needs to be thined down !! but yes I am not joking !!

    Do you put in just the veggie oil or you mix it with the diesel?

    99.9% of the time I run 100% veg/sunflower oil, when it get cold the veg thickens so need a wee bit thining out, but if the engine is warm to start with no thining needed, just put pump fuel in before ya stop it, if its going to be cold next time you go for start !!! usualy in realy cold weather I would put a two to one mix--two gallon veg to one diesel !!!
