The increased levels of biofuel in your supermarket diesel should soon see you needing a new fuel pump and injectors then I would guess.

You guess? well thats helpful isn't it!.

The problem with the internet is that its full of completely ill-informed crap, often spouted by bored people trying to fill the void between soap operas on TV, with an eclectic mix of random scaremongering embellished with a few rumours which they have read on various forums, a large percentage of which is often typed by people who are just as bored and as equally ill-informed as them.

The other percentage typing guff like this (and playing guessing games) are the ones still trying to justify paying 5p - 10p more than everybody else for their fuel!.

Put it this way, I would challenge the Author to back up these claims with links to some accredited source, ideally an independant laboratory whose activities are related to fuel testing.

I suspect they won't be able to, because if it had been proven it wouldn't be on sale, and so its nothing more than School Gate gossip, and tired, over used gossip at that, and i'll explain why.

Back in the 1990's the majority of sulphur was removed from diesel fuel due to some health scare (yes another one), shortly afterwards, diesel vehicles began to experience premature injection pump failures on an international scale. This was because the Sulphur provided valuable lubrication for the moving parts inside the fuel injection pump, and ultra low sulphur diesel just didn't provide enough of that protection. In order to put back the lubrication properties, small amounts of biodiesel were added to diesel in order to replace the removed sulphur, which eventually solved the problem.

This isn't a new thing, EU legislation has dictated that 3.5% - 5% biodiesel amounts have been in ALL diesel fuels, (including premium ones) since the early 2000's, its only now the scaremongering has begun with widespread use of the internet, and the increase in self proclaimed armchair experts preaching on various motoring forums.

Recently (2009) biodiesel amounts have been increased to 7% and in the next few years will be increased to 10%, again Biodiesel content is obligatory and this is EU legislation and so will apply to ALL fuels, including those super duper premium fuels. However the same legislation also applies to vehicle manufacturers, in that they have to ensure that their vehicle will run on, and be warrantied for the ever increasing % of biodiesel in all commercial diesel.

http://www.smmt.co.uk/2009/12/smmt-statement-on-the-revision-of-bs-en590-to-allow-b7-diesel/

In fact some manufacturers have already gone one stage further, and have warrantied Biodiesel content of upto B30 (30% biodiesel, 70% Diesel) Citroen is one example.

If you look back further, some VAG group cars were even warrantied for B100 (100% biodiesel) use, and this can be seen in the owners manual and the fuel filler cap (referred to as 'RME') some Skoda models without a DPF are approved for use on 100% biodiesel as late as 2010.

http://www.volkswagen.co.uk/assets/common/pdf/general/biodiesel.pdf

Its ironic really, that the Author's wish to run on fuel which has less biodiesel content, is actually more likely to cause premature wear on their injection pump, considering its the prime lubricity commodity in the fuel!. But a fool and their money.......

Either way, all diesel fuel sold commercially has to comply with a minimum standard,, in the UK its EN 590 and its illegal to sell fuel which doesn't comply with random refinery monitoring, forecourt tank dipping and large fines to ensure that its adhered to. So whether you buy your diesel from a Supermarket or from a 'name' you will be getting fuel that passes that agreed specification and the fuel that your car manufacturer has designed its components to run on.

Incidentally, if you want to get a bit extra ooomph and potentially a few extra mpg from Supermarket fuel or indeed any standard fuel without a premium fuel price, buy a bottle of 2-EHN (2-Ethylhexyl nitrate) from Ebay, this is the main cetane booster contained in some premium fuels (and various off the shelf additives) and you can save a fortune by adding it to standard fuel yourself.

Here is a commercial link to 2-EHN in regular diesel fuels

http://www.eurenco.com/universe/fuel-additives/

Incidentally i've been running 100% home made biodiesel in a common rail BMW E46 320D since 2005, i've done over 80k miles on nothing BUT biodiesel, and the car now has 180k on the clock. Its also still on the same Injectors, Fuel Pump etc, which is amazing, considering the comment above. I don't recommend that anybody does this without a lot of research first, but i've included the fact for clarity, nothing more.

In fact you are more likely to be out of pocket with expensive repairs just by owning a diesel car with a DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter) than you are through using supermarket fuel.

http://www.theaa.com/motoring_advice/fuels-and-environment/diesel-particulate-filters.html

Hopefully the Author I quoted will come back with an equally lengthly reply to justify their "I Guess", also containing links. But I suspect they won't.

I live in Central Scotland. I know a fuel tanker driver. All fuel comes from the same refinery. This point has been made so many times. When will it sink in to the thick skulls of some people. So what if Esso, BP, Shell, et al choose to add stuff to their tanks. It all starts off the same. Remember the Formula Shell debacle in the mid 1980's. I'll stick with the untampered stuff my local supermarket sells.

i normally use shell or bp but once i put in supermarket fuel and a few days later one of my fuel injectors went. coincidence? who knows
i personally think these fuels are 'watered down' versions of proper fuel and spending a few pennies extra per litre is a smart move to increase the lifespan of the fuel system. It doesn't be break the bank ffs

You are a fecking idiot. Just read your own post again, and have a think!! 'Watered down' FFS what planet do you live on????. Just listen to people with years of experience of buying fuel. All the big boys do is add stuff.

Supermarket fuel sure does taste different.

I'd be interested to hear why anything of the correct viscosity would ruin a fuel injector. I imagine you could run water through them and they'd be fine. These people putting expensive fuel in are probably the same people topping their engine oil up with whatever is cheapest on the shelf.

I know what I'd rather spend my money on.

I must admit Shell diesel is slightly better than your stand supermarket and by better I mean you get more miles out of it (proven by travelling the exact same route of 280 odd miles) but it'll save you a couple of £'s if it's more that 4p 'ish cheaper than your local shell garage go get it cheaper from the supermarkets had no problems using it and done over 50,000 miles in the last two years.

I can't believe these automated spammers working for BP who repeatedly attack posts about better value supermarket fuel. I've had my VW Golf for 12 years and it's only ever had supermarket diesel. My mechanic says it's in perfect condition and it runs excellently.

Good on Asda leading the way. But it's way to slow compared to how much crude oil prices have fallen.
