Re: bio diesel- any one use it?
hi ive looked into this and been talking to a few truck makers because i run three 44ton artics and use about 12000 ltrs a month ,and the only ones which say its ok are mercedes and renault. the oil is thinner and burns quicker and hotter, and must have certain addictives to stop fuel seals failing and must be mixed in the right measurements .the car will run on it ,but invaludate your warranty and for what you save its not worth the risk . there needs to be more research into these fuels,
also i know of one company who mixes all sorts of oils and is going for the max, volume for resale and hes not adding the right addictives to the oil , if you use it make sure its from a good sorce.
