I know some of you use veggie oil, mainly 1.9 engines. I have a 2002 2.5tdi and have been told that the bio diesel is fine to use and as its advertised in 1 place in Glasgow at 99p a litre was wondering if anyone can confirm if its usable without any probs.

Cheers

Bob

I've used 3000 LTRs of Bio in my 2.5TDI 2001, and had no problems with the van.

The cheap fuel pump I bought to pump it with has seen better days though, the plastics seem to have gone brittle and the seals in the pump are seeping but its still working .

sadly, by Bio supplier burnt down :( so running on veg/derv mix now

I wish I could get hold of it without a 100 mile round trip.
Deliver is 1000 L containers, a bit too obvious for the front garden...

Make a box to put over it and paint it green. The IBC's they deliver in are only pallet sized.
That's what I'm doing next time.

I've been using it for about a year with no problems at all. Changed the fuel filter as recommended but that's all (well all that is due to bio anyway!)

Just hope I can find some when I move back to Manchester in June
