In English we would usually say vegetable oil. Oil of vegetables would make sense. Vegetables oil does not.

Vegetbles oil is incorrect as well

I second AlanDanskin and JaredBogaa. The spelling of "vegetables" is wrong and so is the syntax. A more natural English translation would be, "vegetable oil."

Veggie Oil is predominantly used in Kenya. Olive oil is too expensive propably idk.

There is a spelling mistake in Vegetables, (you have vegetbles, you are missing "a") Also you would say Vegetable Oil, Hope you can make the changes in this spelling
