The supermarkets I go too only seem to sell 3 litres max and then it's not really worth it as it's averaging a 1 a litre!

Can u use sunflower oil aswell as vegetable then?

I can't recall what info I had to provide to get my Bookers Card? But it wasn't hard I don't think. Tell them you have a mobile chip shop and will be buying lots of veggie oil

Farm Foods is where I get my rapeseed from 10 ltrs for 9.95, print off the vouchers from there website and get 10% off. Happy days, ive been running on it 100% in summer from May to October and down to 60/40 in favour of diesel in the winter and no problems.

I use Tesco as they've been running the deal of 2 x 5 litres of Vegetable Oil, Sunflower Oil and Olive Pomace Oil for 8.00 for a while now. I thought at first my local stores did not stock it as it's not by the regular cooking oil, it is in the World food section where you find the large bags of rice etc. My local store is not a huge Tesco, but they have it. I've mainly been using Sunflower Oil, but I think they're all ok, though I've not tried the Olive Pomace Oil yet.
