Can a jeep cheeroke run on vegetable oil?

No way. It has an internal combustion gasoline engine and runs on gasoline. Some Flex Fuel vehicles can run on a mix of 85% Ethanol and 15% gasoline. But no gasoline vehicle can run on 100% vegetable oil. A diesel on the other hand can run on vegetable oil. Vegetable oil can be used as diesel fuel just as it is, without being converted to biodiesel. The downside is that straight vegetable oil (SVO) is much more viscous (thicker) than conventional diesel fuel or biodiesel, and it doesn't burn the same in the engine -- many studies have found that it can damage engines.
