24p/litre is the cost of the cheapest vegetable oils sold for cooking. Rapeseed and grapeseed oils can be had for those sort of prices. It's a viable fuel *if* the Chancellor can get his thumb out of his butt. I suspect that the truth is that the government (any government) really doesn't want to see alternatives to petroleum being used on a large scale.
The main headache is that world vegetable oil production is at present about 0.5% that of petroleum production. There's some hope for improvement though, Malaysia produces about a third to a half of the world's vegetable oil as palm oil. With that sort of productivity it sounds entirely possible that tropical countries could supply the world's energy needs. It may be a way of bringing aid to places that need it.
