Thing is if you are buying Bio from a garage, you pay duty on it, so it works out to be about 80p a litre, so you don't save much. If you can make it yourself or use SVO (straight vegetable oil) mixed with white diesel, you can make a bit of a saving, as you can get SVO from about 40p litre from a wholesaler. Not sure about the mJet, I think my 10v would take a 75:25 of white diesel:SVO mix. Apparently old Pugs are good for just about anything, I know a guy who uses SVO in his, I think 3/4s SVO and 1/4 diesel in summer with no problems. Although after a few thousand miles with SVO in the tank you need to replace your fuel filter as a one off thing, as it does make previous deposits in your tank move around. Anyone tried it in the last few days?
By the way, any JTD owners ever slipped farmer Jones twenty quid for a tankful of his red?
Pud, i am v.interested in this for my 10v Jtd, and have done a lot of research about it on the net.
I have also spoke to nige on several occasions about his old red jtd wagon ,which he used to run on bio, but my findings were not too positive,due to it being difficult to obtain and the goverment already putting a "Stealth tax" on it, making it quite pricey.
#1. Bio, up here in yorkshire is not widely available, the only "Real" company to do it is "Rix" who do a 25% mix but it costs more than normal diesel,
, and thats no good!
#2. I did find another company called http://www.ebony-solutions.co.uk
, who offer various mixes of bio, but again not much cheaper, and you have to buy a tanker full of the stuff!!
#3. Brewing your own may work, but veeeeery risky if you dont get it right, i know a guy who tried this and totally screwed up all his fuel system, resulting in a few grand bill to repair.
So to conclude, In my opinion anyway! Bio is a Clean, Green,Sustainable, Re-usable fuel, with next to Zero emissions, and possiby makes your car run better and more efficiently, That our wonderful government wont let us have
, and there the ones who think we are all the children of satan, polluting the worlds atmospere, when clearly advances in alternative fuel have been made, but they wont let us use them, what a set of t055ers!!.
So if any one does know of a bio-diesel outlet, at a reasonable cost, then post it up,as i am sure a load of people would buy it, including me.
