Petter AVA2 help/info needed

Hi can anyone help me find info on the Petters AVA2 10hp engines. I
have a chance of buying two and want to know as much about them as I
can find out. Is anyone running one of these? can they be run on WVO
like the Lister CS? How long could you run them for at a time if kept
at right operating temp? Any manuals or instructions for them in
downloadable format pdf etc ?
Thanks. George (new to stationary engines but willing to learn :-)

There are three pages.
They should in theory be bettery at running on vegetable oil as they are air cooled and run that bit hotter, but it all depends on how you look after them, oil changes etc etc.
Bear in mind also that vegetable oil (fuel) and mineral oil (lubrication) don't like mixing....
There are also issues with lubrication of the injection pump and injector.
