    Filled up the van at the local Morrissons yesterday and saw they have a pump now selling Bio Deisel....its the same price as regular fossil fuel deisel, I honestly thought it would be cheaper to encourage us to go eco friendly:confused: Does anyone use it? Does it give the same performance as...

    This is a great site and well worth registering for its free e-newsletter. It's already saved me a few quid! :) I especially like the idea of a dedicated credit card to get 5% cashback - as long as you pay it back in full each month I: http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheaper-fuel

    Just an idea but would it be possible for people to summarise on this thread exactly which engine types will run veg oil and what conversion is required, if any. Details of mixing ratio's and remapping would be good. Ideally each engine type should be covered by someone who has run veg oil or...

    I have been using SVO, but in the last few days found out that a cousin of mine's (by marriage) parents own a chippie!!:D.. Now that the price of veggie oil is rising I thought I might see about getting some WVO from them. What's the best way to filter it? I've done a bit of reading on various...

    OK, there's lots of threads popping up about this recently, so I thought I'd try to condense them into one source of reference (if that's OK?) I'm only going to deal with what I actually KNOW, so I'll let anyone else fill in the gaps......PLEASE - if you add anything, can it be limited to 'I...

    I have a 2.5TDi, I have read all the threads I can find on this site and I am still confused. Some say it doesn't run well and caused problems (what problems?), others suggest it's OK. Looking for a difinitive answer please.

    With all info on MPG and fuel prices etc and having read that the 2.5s dont like veggie . How would a low mix of diesel/veggie run anyone tried? What is it for full tank 60/70 litres (cant remember) but what about say 50 litres diesel 20 litres veggie.(maybe less) Not huge savings but if...

    Hi, looking to buy my first T4 which will be used as a daily driver. I was using biodiesel in my last motor and would like to do the same in the T4. Can you tell me if the 1.9 is free of electronic controls and if so is it more suited to biodiesel? Cheers Jon

    Just been informed by my wife that Morrisons are now charging £2.21 for 3l of their cheapo veggie oil!! WTF??? :eek::eek: Two weeks ago, it was £1.68 for the same amount!! I realise that demand and supply dictates prices - and that the weather has impacted production - but the cynic in me...
