What is a good substitute for canola oil?

I need a substitute for canola oil.

Depending on the desired flavor, other oils such as vegetable oil, extra virgin olive oil, or even sesame or peanut oil can act as a good substitute for canola oil. In some instances, even melted butter or margarine can substitute as well.

Canola oil is a type of plant-based oil that has near to no taste. Therefore, you can use vegetable oil or another plant-derived oil in its place. Other acceptable plant-derived oils include corn, sunflower, or peanut oil. Just be sure to use an oil that has no distinctive taste, or else you might have a strange concoction.

It depends on what you are using it for, but generally you can substitute any neutral-flavored oil, such as regular vegetable oil, corn oil, or soybean oil.

Well, I don't know about a substitute, but I can tell you depending on what your making DON'T use vegetable oil. If it goes in the oven and the recipe calls for canola oil, DON'T use vegetable oil. I know from experience it doesnt cook right.
