Coconut oil help with the release of bodily gases and is the feedstock for biodiesel for diesel vehicles. Extensive research done in the Philippines have shown the use of coconut oil as an engine lubricant, engine cleaner and diesel for transport.

Several other tropical island countries are using coconut oil as an alternative fuel source to drive automobiles, trucks, and buses, and to power generators. Further research into the oil’s capacity is on going in the islands of the Pacific, however, to date it appears it is not useful as a fuel source due to the cost of labour and supply constraints.

On another note, Coconut oil is also attested for the assistance of bloating and release of bodily gases. Therefore, for bloating and stuck wind; coconut oil’s the cure.
