Fry and drive

Regarding different kinds of oil as fuel and as engine oil; no harm it seems and surely other types of oils can also be used in the engine as lubricant.

Enviornmet friendly and if cars last longer and people get less cancer maybe cheaper in energy terms too.
Fry and drive
When staff at a Welsh supermarket first noticed dramatic increases in the sale of cooking oil, they thought the locals were doing a lot of frying. They weren't. They were filling up their cars with it - not surprising, as it's only 42p a litre. Trouble is, if you don't pay duty, it's illegal. Jim White reports

According to Mike Hebson, the manager of Asda's store in Swansea, south Wales, there was no reason to be suspicious that sales of the company's cheapest bottles of cooking oil were running 20% higher than the previous year, way above any other store in Britain. "We just thought it was one of those things," says Hebson.

That is about different types of *fuel* oil. Diesel is still called (in some places) "Fuel Oil". Much like heating oil for "oil fired home heating" in a house. This oil, is just diesel oil (in fact in the UK it isn't unknown for people to use heating Oil instead of Diesel - the tax is much cheaper).
You are confusing Fuel Oil with Lubricant Oil.

Used for fuel in diesel engines. Well known.
Your idea of using chain saw oil for lubrication is what everybody here thinks of as daft. Of course, you could be running a joke..)
