I reckon even the main stream companies are supplying all the petrol stations with at least 10% biofuel in their diesel and my car runs fine on it

if your car doesn´t have a dpf is ok
fame (biofuel) is not advised for dpf, lowers dpf life duration, and when mixed with engine oil won´t evaporate.
When dpf starts to get worn to much , even with lots of regens it starts to encrease the bar pressure as high as 15 bar (normal values 0.1-1 bar), at that moment when regen , diesel will pass through the bores and mix with engine oil. new dpf cost over 1400 euros.
Fame is also not good for the cat
all diesel in almost every country in eurozone must have a minimum of 7% fame.
