    Hi All, Has anyone ever considered using a biodiesel blend to increase lubrication and burn quality on these engines? Having looked at a few scientific studies it is often found that there is a huge increase in lubricity of the fuel when mixing 2-4% Biodiesel with regular diesel. Note first...

    If having "organically" grown food is good for us then surely we should treat our tractors to the same wholesome goodness? Does anyone know where to source any and what the price differential is? :confused:
  3. Alfa Giulietta
    Has anyone actually tried a giulietta on biodiesel? I have a 2.0jtdm 170 and am wondering if it will work and not expire my warranty!! Any info appreciated Rob
  4. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I filled up last week with £90 worth of diesel to fill it up. I was wondering if I can use Biodiesel on my v8 1.9 JTDM engine. I have read that not all diesels like this. What do I need to look for so I know I am getting the correct type of Biodiesel?
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi Guys, Thought I'd just post my latest experiences of using Bio in the 159 1.9JTDm I've been running it for about 7000 miles now on various mixes of 100% Bio, 100% pump diesel and everything in between and can so far report almost no problems.... I usually get my bio for a place in Widnes...

  7. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Good day gents. I've been making my own Biodiesel for about 8 years and have been fuelling various Vauxhall Astras, a ford king cab, an old Nissan Patrol Gr with a lovely 4.2 and the last one was a Vectra 2.0DTI. The Vectra went pop four months ago (and I know why) and I managed to purchase a GT...
  8. Introduce Yourself
    Evening all. Purchased my first Alfa a month or so back, a 56 plate 1.9 GT. What a change from the Vauxhalls I've been stuck in for the last 12 years! I'm 41 and have been making my own Biodiesel for 8 years and the Alfa seems to like it. From what I've read already I seem to have the usual...
  9. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, am thinking of switching to biodiesel for my 156 2.4jtdm 20v, will it be ok to run on this as ive heard some diesels dont like the funny juice!??
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Anyone used Bio in the above? if so how did you get on? How about driving in cold conditions? Can buy at my location for 10-12p/L cheaper than normal:):) Seems good to me!

    Hi all just filled up with my First Tank of Bio Diesel , will let you know how it goes :)
  12. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi I am currently running two cars on home produced bio-diesel (FAME) - not veg oil or veg with thinners!. I would like to buy an Alfa GT 1.9 Mjet Diesel and run that on it too. Anybody got any experience of this - good or bad? I know the GT is common rail injection, but does a GT have a...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Can anybody tell me if this is OK to use in the 2.4JTDm engine as found in the Brera/159? Called into a local supermarket filling station today that has just undergone a refit to find the new pumps now offer biodiesel as well as the standard stuff and at the same price too. I'd be interested...
  14. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I drive an Alfa GT Coupe which will happily run on Biodiesel, and is outside of it's warranty period now, so I intend to start buying from these folks: enfuels :: environmental fuel solutions In fact I believe my Alfa should run better on their stuff. Anyone have experience with biodiesel...
  15. Tuning & Upgrades
    .....with a re-map?:wow: Is it possible with a GT JTD?:confused: There is a link on Angel Tuning, and with the current prices of fuel rising at a crazy rate I have been thinking of investing in biodiesel production. But.......I also want a re-map. Any thoughts?:)
  16. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hello Does anyone know if the 156 2.4 JTD 2002 is able to run on bio-diesel?If so what modifications will be needed. and will it reduce the life of the engine? and will I get the same performance? After all at around 40p a litre its well worth looking into. and we can save the planet at the...
